Ontario Eliminates Police Records Check Fees

from the Ontario News site:

Beginning April 1, 2022, amendments to the Police Record Checks Reform Act, 2015 will remove the fee for these two types of police record checks, making it easier for Ontarians to support animal shelters, food banks, emergency response initiatives, and many more organizations in their communities. Volunteers can also receive up to five copies of these types of police record checks for free, making it easier to apply to multiple volunteering positions.

A notification regarding this from the Association Municipalities Ontario was on Amherstburg council’s April 11, 2022 agenda.
