ACLC Volunteer Registration and Screening Process (Manitoba)
NOT EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERS AT A CADET CORPS NEEDS TO BE A “SCREENED”
VOLUNTEER, PLEASE CONSULT PROVINCIAL SCREENING COORDINATOR.
ALL RPOVINCIAL BRANCHES ADHERE TO POLICY 10.1
All volunteers with Cadet Corps, under the CO, working directly with Cadets on the
training side, will be screened as per this direction but there is additional paperwork as
described in CATO 23-07.
Screened Volunteers for Support Committee are vetted by the Support Committee Chair
and will be introduced to the CO.
No volunteer should be actively volunteering, either Civilian Instructor (CI) or Civilian
Volunteer (CV), until the approval from ACLC (Army cadet League of Canada) has been
processed and the volunteer is in possession of the ID card. The presence of
unscreened volunteers/instructors has the potential to render the insurance for the
whole Corps/Activity null and void.
Approval is at the discretion of the Army Cadet League (National); provincial branches
make an initial recommendation. Volunteering starts once the ID Card has been
To ensure a complete package and expedite approval, follow the attached steps carefully.
1. Apply for a Vulnerable Sector Screening (Criminal Record check including
Vulnerable Vector Screening) at the local police agency. Residents of
Brandon and Winnipeg must apply to those city police agencies.
There is a fee associated with this.
The Winnipeg City police have an online option for VSS application.
On the website it prompts to send the results directly to ACLC
(MB). Once an email from the Police received informing that VSS
results are ready, it then must be shared (access personal account
and choose option “share”) with ACLC (MB).
Rural residents must apply to the RCMP.
Some RCMP offices waive the fee for volunteers and may require a
support letter. The support letter can be requested via email
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate your full name, mailing
address and the cadet corps you are applying for. The letter will be
mailed to you, and your Cadet Corps Support Committee chair will be
notified of this action.
Copies of Screening from other volunteer activities or from employment will not be accepted, an
original document with the police agency seal is required.
