Police Vulnerable Sector Check

Police Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC)

Most positions with the City of Markham require a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC), also called a Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS). Once you submit your VSC, as indicated below, we will update your account with a two year expiry from the date of submission.

Submit your VSC

We are required to see the ORIGINAL VSC, completed within the last 120 days before we can confirm you as a City of Markham Volunteer (you retain the original VSC). You can submit your VSC at one of the drop off locations (listed below). Please be sure to also have a volunteer account set up using these instructions.

Obtain your VSC

York Region Residents:

Email us a request for a ‘Volunteering Request Letter’ with your full (legal) name and address.

Afterward, take the letter plus two pieces of government-issued identification, to a York Region Police (YRP) location. Your identification must confirm your name, birth date and address. One piece of identification must have your photo. Youths may bring student transcripts, pay stubs or, if under 15, a parent driver’s license. YRP will charge a $30 application fee if you have the “Volunteering Request Letter”, or $60.00 without the letter.

Designated Police Stations:

  •  YRP Community Resource Centre at 10720 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill, open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm, Saturdays 8am to 4pm.

Alternatively you can  request a police check online which allows you to pick up the VSC at more locations. Note that this alternative might take longer than going directly to the designated stations.

Outside of York Region:

Email us your city of residence and we will provide instructions to complete your local Police Department's VSS or VSC requirements (letter and application form).
