When accessing the online site https://justice.gov.bc.ca/eCRC/ for Criminal Record Checks, you will be asked for a code. This code is specific to our school ONLY.


When complete, the results will be emailed to the school directly. There have been circumstances where the applicant has been asked to print the application and bring it into the school to be faxed in. This DOES NOT mean there is a problem with your application, it is just a glitch in their system.Thank you for taking the time to fill this out and thank you for volunteering at our school!


1. Complete a Volunteer Driver Application. (This needs to be done for every vehicle that is driven and redone if there is a vehicle change.) You can get this application by downloading it (click here) or obtaining it from the school office.

2. Bring in you current Vehicle Insurance and Driver's License for photocopying. The vehicle insurance must be current not expired.

3. ICBC has a new online service: http://www.icbc.com/drivingrecords. This needs to be done once every school year. Super easy and super fast!
