Volunteer Alberta Announces RCMP Halt of Mandatory Fingerprinting Timelines

Sep 30, 2014

free-vector-heart-fingerprint_132936_Heart_Fingerprint.jpgRepresentatives from the nonprofit and voluntary sector gathered with RCMP at the National Dialogue on Screening Volunteers 2014, on September 9th.   

The sector has been concerned trying to find answers to many potential issues regarding how mandatory fingerprinting for vulnerable sector checks might effect them and their volunteers.   This dialogue was a chance for the RCMP to hear and seek answers to these many questions.  As a result, the mandatory timelines of July 2015, and July 2016, have been put on hold.   While federal employees will still see these policies come into place, how they will apply to the nonprofit sector is under review.
