What’s New With OFHSA?

Legislative review of the Police Record Checks Reform Act, 2015 (PRCRA)


Due by September 11th

The Ministry of the Solicitor General (the ministry) is conducting a review of the Police Record Checks Reform Act, 2015 (PRCRA), in line with Section 21 of the act, which requires a review within five years of the act coming into force. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the PRCRA is achieving its policy intent of standardizing the police record check process while balancing public safety and privacy rights.

The review also aims to gather information related to issues not directly governed by the PRCRA such as:
• Exploring baselines/minimum requirements, reusability, and validity periods for police record checks;
• Issues that impact the delivery of police record checks, such as processing times and how frequently checks are required / requested;
• Employment opportunities for those with a criminal record and connection to public safety;
• The impact(s) of record check requirements on the supply and demand of volunteers; and,
• Impact of police record checks on the resource capacity of police services, municipalities, and Ontarians.
 As part of its review and to help identify potential areas of improvement, the ministry is soliciting feedback from the public.
