Note:  be aware that all police services charge a fee for processing a Police Vulnerable Sector Screen (VSS) reference check and it may take up to 12 weeks for them to process your application.

Step 5: MARCH - Log into HSPnet to view your Term 2 placement details (based on your submitted GeoPreferences form).

Step 6: APRIL 1-15 - Arrange an appointment with Synergy Employment Services to have your CPP ‘stamped’ by the April 15th deadline.
