A Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check is intended for applicants seeking employment or volunteer positions with agencies or companies that require a criminal records check, along with a search of outstanding entries and charges. You can proceed with a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check if the agency has determined that a search of pardoned sex offenders is not required. This check is not intended for individuals seeking employment or a volunteer position working with children or vulnerable persons.

All applicants applying for a volunteer position must provide a letter from the agency where they intend to volunteer. The letter must be printed on the agency's letterhead and include the applicant's name and volunteer position, stating the position is a "volunteer non-paid position."

How long will it take?

We strive to complete requests while you wait; however if you have a criminal record, require fingerprinting or we have to confirm any information with another police service, additional processing time will be required. 

Please note: Based on results of the Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check, fingerprints may be required to confirm the identity of the applicant and a fingerprint fee will be charged. For applicants who decline fingerprint submissions, the check will indicate that the document is incomplete and no refunds will be issued.

In compliance with the RCMP ministerial directive, applicants with a criminal record outside of York Region will be required to submit their fingerprints in order to have the Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check completed.

If fingerprints are needed to complete the Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check, processing time will be required and the check will not be produced while you wait.

Who can apply?

Only residents of York Region with two pieces of government-issued identification can obtain a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check. The identification must confirm your name, date of birth and address, and one piece of government identification must include a photo.


Volunteerism is benevolent work for which an individual does not receive financial compensation for his/her time and is not ordered to do so by a court or a judicial body. In order to have the fee discounted, your application must be accompanied by a letter from the volunteer agency, on the agency's letterhead, with the following information:

  • The name and address of the agency that requires the record check
  • Your name
  • The reason for the record check (e.g., coach, etc.) and where a Vulnerable Sector Check was requested, who you will be working with (children, seniors, etc.)
  • A statement that you will not be paid for your work nor compensated for any expenses
