Criminal Record/Child Welfare Checks

A Requirement for Working with Youth

A Criminal Record/Child Welfare Check is required for all volunteers 18 years of age or older. This practice is now commonplace among volunteer-based groups working with youth in Canada in many different aspects of sport, recreation and culture. We are bound by the standards of due diligence to ensure that a Criminal Record/Child Welfare Check is conducted and received before we can consider your application to volunteer

For St. Albert Residents

Once you have filled out and returned the volunteer application form, we will send you an email with further details about volunteering at the Festival. Attached to this email will be a letter confirming your status as a volunteer and requesting a criminal record check be obtained from the St. Albert RCMP detachment free of charge.

Two pieces of current government-issued ID is required to obtain a Police Information Check -  one of these pieces must be a photo ID. 

RCMP Detachment Address: 96 Bellerose Drive, St. Albert
Phone: 780-458-4300
Hours: Monday – Friday 8:00 am - 6:30 pm and Saturday 8:00 am -12:30 pm

For Edmonton and Surrounding Area Residents

Unfortunately, we can not provide Criminal Record Checks free of charge at this time. The fee for a Criminal Record Check/Child Welfare Check in Edmonton is $15 for volunteers. Please visit your local police detachment to procure a Criminal Record Check and remember to bring two forms of ID, one being a photo ID.
