Those camps utilizing Sterling Talent Solutions to complete background checks for staff and volunteers should be aware of recent changes.
Effective December 1, 2017, Canada Post will no longer accept the Canadian Citizenship Card as a primary form of identification. Due to changes to the Canadian Citizenship Card, it is no longer compliant with the requirements for accepted forms of primary identification.
Other forms of accepted primary ID are below.

Hello CCA Members,
As another camping season has come to a close, we’d like to sincerely thank you for your business. We value our relationship and look forward to assisting you in new ways in the coming year.
In addition to our criminal record check (myBackCheck), we also offer other services:
As transporting campers can be a responsibility for some of your employees, appropriate Driver Screening would be recommended for those individuals:
Sterling Talent Solutions’ Driver Abstract (DA) allows clients that hire drivers to determine if their candidate has a clean driving record or if he or she has been caught speeding, neglecting the Highway Act, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or otherwise has any convictions, suspensions, or prohibitions on his or her license. Sterling Talent Solutions’ DA service does not provide clients with information pertaining to accidents, correspondence, plate history, or vehicle history. Turnaround time: 1 – 10 business days depending upon province (Quebec has a longer TAT).
Sterling Talent Solutions’ Driver’s License Verification (DLV) allows clients to verify that their candidate holds a valid driver’s license. Although similar to Sterling Talent Solutions’ Driver Abstract service, the DLV is less detailed and has a turnaround time of 24 hours.
For employees or volunteers that are new to Canada best practice would include a criminal record check in their country of origin. Sterling Talent Solutions offers criminal record checks in 196 different countries. The turnaround time and fee varies by country. Please contact your account manager for country specific details.
To set up a new account or request additional information please contact Linda Ferens:
The Society of Camp Directors urges Provincial Camping Associations to apply to the Bruno Morawetz Speakership Program, which funds fees, travel costs and related expenses up to $2000 for a keynote speaker or seminar leader for any provincial conference, seminar or special workshop.
If you know of someone who could contribute to your professional development as a camp leader, talk to your Association today!
Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2017.
