Deadline update for the current Aug 31, 2020 health requirements:
Due to limitations imposed as a result of Covid-19 this due date may need to be extended and we will continue to monitor the situation. In the interim:
First Aid/CPR– Course offerings are paused at this time. As restrictions are lifted, we will monitor and a new deadline will be communicated.
Immunization Requirements Form (IRF) –We are aware that you may not be able to see a doctor for TB tests, blood work, etc, therefore we understand if your IRF is not fully completed by Aug 31. Please complete as much of this as you can.
Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) – If you have a Toronto address, you apply for your VSC from Toronto Police via mail. Please email Health Services at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email the Toronto Police VSC application Form. This form must be printed on legal sized paper (8 ½ “ x 14’). If you are not able to print the form on legal size, Health Services will mail the form to you –email email@example.com with your mailing address.
If you live outside of Toronto, please check with your regional police service to determine if they are providing VSCs. Some police services are currently not providing VSC services due to Covid restrictions at this time. If your regional police service is not processing VSCs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your region and a note that they are not processing applications at this time. Your requirement will be extended until your police service provides VSCs again.
