Some employers or organizations require different types of background checks.

A Criminal Record Check simply verifies whether or not you have a criminal record.

A Vulnerable Sector Check is a special type of criminal record check required for situations where a person will be in a position of trust or authority over children, the elderly, the disabled, or another vulnerable group.

As of October 25th, 2018 residents of the Municipality of Yarmouth will no longer be required to pay a fee and obtain a receipt from the Municipal Building in Hebron.  However, residents will still require a letter from the organization requesting the criminal record check or vulnerable sector check to bring to the Yarmouth County RCMP Detachment.   

If you live within the Municipality of Yarmouth you can apply in-person for a Criminal Record Check / Vulnerable Sector Check from the Yarmouth Rural RCMP Detachment on Starrs Road on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. (closed from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm for lunch).
