Check It Out! Ontario’s Police Record Check Legislation Comes into Force November 1, 2018
In the first quarter of 2016 we wrote about the Police Record Checks Reform Act, 2015 (the “Police Record Checks Act”) – new legislation to standardize the process by which police record checks are requested, conducted and obtained in Ontario. Although the Police Record Checks Act was passed and received Royal Assent on December 3, 2015, it lay dormant waiting to be proclaimed into force. On November 1, 2018, after almost three years, the legislation will finally be proclaimed into force.
