A criminal record check with a vulnerable person's check is mandatory and the employee is required to produce one on their own, at their own cost. It also needs to be current within 6 months, otherwise you must get another one. You may also be required to randomly redo that check at any point throughout your employment and at the facilities discretion. It can take anywhere from a couple of days to 6 weeks to acquire depending on how backed up your local RCMP station is. Generally the fee is $25.00 depending on your province and city.
