School Volunteer Info


Volunteer Opportunities

The Saanich School District appreciates the many volunteers who support our students throughout the year. We are committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students and therefore ask volunteers to provide schools with the following information:


Criminal Record Checks

Volunteers are required to complete a Criminal Record Check every three years.

Please contact the office at your child's school to request a link and code unique to Saanich School District in order to apply online to the Ministry of Justice. Your Criminal Record Check will be sent to the School Board Office for review.  Alternatively, through the link you are able to share the results of a previous CRC completed through the Ministry of Justice within the past three years. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Criminal Records Review Program is implementing a new process for Electronic Identity Verification using the BC Services Card.  If you are using the BC Services Card to access the online service for the first time you will be directed to activate your card by video or alternatively you can do this in person through Service BC.  Once you receive notification from BC Services that the verification process is complete, you will need to return to the eCRC system to complete your request for Criminal Record Check with the Saanich School District.  Please see the eCRC User Guide and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Applicants who do not have a BC Services Card can visit their catchment school office to complete a 'Volunteer Consent to a Criminal Record Check' Form.


Volunteer Drivers

In addition to completing a Criminal Record Check, Volunteer Drivers are required to complete the following steps each school year:

  1. Request a copy of your Driver’s Abstract. You can either:
    1. Apply online:
    2. Visit your local ICBC branch. Please bring your driver’s license and another form of ID. OR
    3. Call ICBC on 250-978-8300. Please have your driver’s license number ready.
  2. Complete Volunteer Driver Application.
  3. Bring the completed form to your school office along with a copy of your Driver’s Abstract, Driver’s License and insurance document.

We greatly appreciate all of our volunteers taking the time to complete this process. All information will be kept strictly confidential. Please feel free to contact your school office for more information.
