Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS)
All participants with the Barrie HomeShare Pilot Project will need to undergo a Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) police check. Our staff will assist you in completing this form and Barrie HomeShare will pay the costs. The completed VSS will be mailed to your mailing address directly from Barrie Police Services. Please note that applicants from outside Barrie will need to independently obtain a VSS from their own jurisdiction. Participants must provide a copy of a "Clear" VSS to our staff before they can be matched. This is an important, mandatory step in the process to ensure the safety of all involved. However, the VSS can only be conducted for an individual who has lived in Canada for at least one year.
