    • Please be advised that it could take 4 to 8 weeks or longer to process your application. It is your responsibility to ensure that you receive the results of your police vulnerable sector check prior to your requisite health form deadline.
    • For detailed information, review the Instructions for the Toronto Police Service Check Application Form web page.
  • For students who reside in another region or province: If you live in another region or province, check your specific regional police services website (for example, Durham, Halton, Hamilton, Peel or York) and read their instructions carefully to learn about their requirements and the process for obtaining their application form.
