Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you require a minimum of two criminal record checks?

All applicants of the BCCSW are required to undergo a criminal record check in accordance to the Criminal Records Review Act. Included with your application is a ‘Consent to a Criminal Record Check’ form which gives the BCCSW consent to request the criminal record check on your behalf.

Applicants must also go to their local police detachment (RCMP or city police) and request a criminal record check. You do not need to bring any forms with you, the police have all the necessary forms at the detachment.

If an applicant has lived/worked in another country, they are required to provide a criminal record check from that country. There are exceptions, please contact the BCCSW at [email protected] or call 604-737-4916 to discuss your particular situation.
