Information Regarding Police Records Check Policy
All students who accept an offer of admission into a Medical,
Residency, Nursing or Rehabilitation Therapy program will provide
evidence of a Police Check and Vulnerable Sector Screening, conducted at
their expense, before they will be permitted to register in the
The Schools will make reasonable efforts to inform
potential applicants of the requirement to have a Police Check and
Vulnerable Sector Screening and that a “not clear” Police Check may
result in withdrawal of an offer of admission, or suspension or
expulsion from the program.
An applicant or
student who submits false, misleading or incomplete information about a
criminal charge or criminal record may be subject to sanction by the
School and/or the University.
The Ontario Human Rights Code
permits the discrimination in the provision of educational services on
the basis of a criminal record, provided that a pardon has not been
granted under the Criminal Records Act. Accordingly, it would not be a
violation of the human rights code to deny admission to the Faculty of
Health Sciences to any individual who has a criminal record.
Nevertheless, universities are required to act fairly and reasonably
when making decisions that affect the rights and opportunities of
others. As a result, decisions which result in the denial of admission
to or removal from an academic program must be made thoughtfully,
respecting the need for due process.
