ALL Ontario School boards to conduct criminal checks 4 ALL volunteers.

    1. Petition by

      Heather Elder

      Ottawa, Canada

While, most countries have adopted a safe practice in the area of child safety, some areas of Canada are falling behind. The Capital of Canada, Ottawa for example has two school boards: Ottawa Carleton District School board, and the Ottawa Catholic School Board both of which allow volunteers into the schools to work with children WITHOUT a criminal background check.
Many school boards within Ontario have a strong and safe policy but there is no legislation which would prevent them from sliding in the area of child safety.
Please support the safety of our children and petition for the Ministry of Education to be pro-active in preventing harm to our students.

      The lack of legislation in this area is totally unacceptable. I suspect most parents presume police checks are already in place, or public outcry would be vast and loud. Thank you Heather for your positive action in safeguarding our children and grandchildren.

      The government needs to step up and do what's right for our children, and keep them safe!
