Anyone working in child care services, whether they are administrators, in charge of care services, assistants, replacements, volunteers, interns or are involved in the transportation of children, and whether they are paid or not, must be the subject of an absence of impediment check.
Obtaining a memorandum of understanding
In order to submit a request for background verification, child care service providers must first sign a memorandum of understanding with the SPVM concerning the screening of people who currently work or may be assigned to work with vulnerable persons.
To do this, please send us the following documents, duly completed and signed:
These should be sent by e-mail, regular mail or fax to:
Module vérification des antécédents
Service de police de la Ville de Montréal
1441, rue Saint-Urbain
Montréal (Québec) H2X 2M6
Tel.: 514 280-0002
Fax: 514 280-9056
Obtaining a verification request form
Once the memorandum of understanding has been signed, you will be given the verification request forms during a short information session.
What is checked
Disclosure of findings
If the police checks uncover information indicating the existence of an impediment within the meaning of the law, the SPVM investigating officer will notify the representative of the day care centre, CPE or coordination office that such checks have been completed.
The findings of police checks are never communicated directly to such representatives. Only candidates, should they wish to, can submit these findings to the appropriate representative for evaluation.
There is no charge in the case of background checks for volunteers, administrators and other adults living in a residence where child care services are provided.
A background check for a paid individual costs $67. This fee is subject to indexation on January 1 of each year, as specified in the By-law concerning fees of the urban agglomeration of Montréal.
Any false statement about the status of the candidates checked will lead to the cancellation of the memorandum of understanding.
