Criminal Record Check Study
The Centre has undertaken a province wide research project on criminal record checks. Over the past few years, the Centre has become increasingly aware of the varying costs for criminal records checks across British Columbia. For non-profit organizations working regionally and provincially, these variations in costs create confusion. The purpose of this study is to provide an overview of criminal record check information for the province, as well as explore opportunities to work together towards a more equitable system for the sector.
