Online Process for Vulnerable Sector Checks in Toronto

Starting Tuesday, September 5, 2023 Vulnerable Sector (VS) Checks for residents of Toronto can be completed online.

If you live in Toronto (postal code begins with “M”), please visit the Toronto Police Service website for current steps to complete the Vulnerable Sector (VS) Check process.

Key Notes

  • Applicants can apply to Toronto Police Services (TPS) directly through the online Police Record Check process.
  • Police Record Check applicants will be able to complete the entire process online, improving response times and giving applicants the ability to track submissions.
  • Community agencies like COTO are no longer be responsible for verifying identification.
  • Applicants must apply using a unique code that COTO has been assigned by the Toronto Police Department.

Applicants will still be able to apply in-person or by mail. We will keep you updated as we get more information on this new process.
