Definition of “Volunteer”
A definition of “volunteer” has been established to clarify the eligibility for supports under the PRCRA. A “volunteer” means a person who performs a service but who receives no compensation for doing so other than an allowance for expenses or an honorarium. It excludes a person receiving some other form of credit, such as academic credit or fulfilling a sentence requirement.

Applicants must reside within the Municipality of West Grey.  The applicant must produce two pieces of appropriate identification confirming  name, date of birth and address. One piece of identification presented must include a photo. (e.g. of an acceptable photo ID) Photo Identification: which provides photo and both the name and date of birth of an individual:

People under 18 are not eligible for police record checks unless they are going to be working or volunteering for a municipal, provincial or federal government. Youth  can provide school ID, bus pass and/or their parent can provide verification. NOTE: Health cards (issued by Canadian province or Territory) are not acceptable for photo identification purposes. All completed police criminal record checks can only be picked up by the individual, with shown identification. Also, completed police record checks checks will not be faxed out to any companies. It is the responsibility of the individual to check back to see if the police record check is done – we will not be responsible for calling the individual. However, generally we can complete a record check while you wait.  You will be advised when filling out the request how long it will take. Once the check is completed, it will indicate the result of the criminal record search. We then include the Corporate Seal of the West Grey Police Service as proof of authenticity.
