Under the terms of the Act to amend the Education Act and the Act respecting private education (2005, chapter 16), any person who may be assigned to work, working, or regularly in contact with the minor-age students of a private school or school board must, before being hired, or at the request of the relevant educational institution, hand in a declaration concerning their judicial record.
The institution may, or can be obligated to, as the case may be, have this declaration checked by a police force.
Obtaining a memorandum of understanding
In order to submit a request for background verification, educational institutions and school bus operators must first sign a memorandum of understanding with the SPVM concerning the verification of judicial records.
To do this, please send us the following documents, duly completed and signed:
2. A declaration or letter from the institution designating the person, as well as a substitute, who will be authorized to sign the memorandum of understanding on behalf of the institution.
School bus operators
1. Our “School Bus Operator Memorandum of Understanding Request” form.
2. Our “Administrator–External Employer Preliminary Verification Request” form for each administrator of your company.
3. A declaration or letter from your company designating the person, as well as a substitute, who will be authorized to sign the memorandum of understanding on behalf of the company.
These should be sent by e-mail, regular mail or fax to:

Obtaining a verification request form

There is no charge for the verification of declarations concerning judicial records for volunteers or interns.
Each verification of declarations concerning judicial records 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.
