Reduce the volunteer criminal reference check fee...

This petition had 5 supporters

Effective January 2018, Peel Region Police have started issuing a fee of $33 for school and sports volunteers (coaches, team-moms, trainers, assistants, school volunteers, parents accompanying students on trips etc...).

Schools and sports associations count on the support of volunteers to assist in a variety of activities requiring student/child safely and supervision. Volunteers are essential! NOW Peel Regional Police is charging $33 for “volunteers” to have a criminal reference check. Keeping in mind that “volunteers” are generously giving their free time and talents to work with children. Furthermore, it is already challenging to find vounteers to sign up for school trips and to coach, and now it seems we’re going to make them pay to do so also? 

Please sign if you wish to express solidarity for volunteers and that Peel Regional Police would at least consider reducing the yearly fee for a nominal fee like $10 as opposed to the new fee of $33, yearly.
