Fee Structure Changes

Contact

The Ottawa Police Service is consulting the public on the proposed fee structure changes for police records check services. 

The current fee structure model was approved in 2007 and no longer reflects the true costs of supporting records check requests.  Market rates of other municipal police services in Ontario include fees for both employment and volunteer records checks. 

In order to provide a fair and equitable fee structure model, we are seeking your input on a cost recovery model for records check services.

Examples of applicants requiring a records check for employment purposes include, but are not limited to:

  • university/college student placements
  • school bus drivers
  • taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers
  • health care and personal support workers
  • teachers and educational assistants
  • trades people
  • retail

Examples of applicants requiring a records check for volunteer purposes include, but are not limited to:

  • coaches and trainers for community-based sports
  • instructors for camp or recreation and arts programs
  • non-profit organizations
  • church groups
