All Attendees 18+ Require a Criminal Record Check

The safety and well-being of our youth delegates is a priority. For this reason, all GOV attendees 18 years or older, require valid Criminal Record Check with a Vulnerable Sector Check (CRC-VSC) in advance of the event. This applies to everyone attending, including:










GOV Criminal Record Checks need to be received by BCAAFC before February 23, 2024

Due to the huge number of registrants and participants, a current (dated anytime AFTER January 1, 2023) and clear CRC-VSC must be completed and sent to the BCAAFC prior to arrival at GOV.

 If you arrive at GOV without your CRC-VSC being complete, you will not be able to stay and you will not be issued a refund.
