Presenters: Rod Piukkala, VP, Police Service Technologies & Chuck Walker, Senior Advisor - Public Safety Information Management, SterlingBackcheck

Duration: 1 hour


Many hiring managers in Canada complete background checks for new employees and volunteers. They know that by checking criminal records they can significantly reduce the risk of theft, fraud, and crime-related costs for their organization. Where things can get tricky though is in understanding and complying with laws around sex offender checks for people working alongside vulnerable populations. By attending this webinar, you will:


  • Learn what is included in a vulnerable sector check and where you can get the best screening for your organization;
  • Know your legal requirements around background screening; and
  • Understand the benefits of the background screening and the potential risks by not screening properly.

This webinar has been pre-approved.
