Police Record Check (PRC) Renewals

Members' PRC Renewals: All Members in Alberta, Northwest Territories and Yukon will receive a renewal e-mail from the National office three months ahead of their PRC expiry date. This email will include instructions and a link to the GGC Members' landing page to start their renewal process through Sterling Talent Solutions (formerly known as BackCheck). For Members without email addresses, renewal forms will be sent out through the mail. There is no charge to Guiders to use this renewal service.

Non-Members PRC Renewals: Please note that Non-Member Volunteers of Girl Guides of Canada requiring a PRC can apply and pay for the service directly online, using Sterling Talent Solutions (formerly known as BackCheck). To take advantage of a reduced fee ($23.00 + GST), your membership office can provide you with an online link for this service. Simply call 1-800-565-8111 to be connected with the office nearest you.

Guiders can access the required forms (A.7) for Non-Member Volunteers through Member Zone (Admin/Forms/Adults), and can contact their membership (iMIS) home with any questions regarding PRCs for these individuals.
