Volunteer Policies - Collection of Personal Information and Police Background Check
Collection of Personal Information
Personal information is collected under subsection 36 (1)(b) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and is protected under the Act. It will be used for emergency contact information and will be shared with supervisors for the purposes of volunteer placement, orientation, training, supervision, and evaluation of the volunteer.
Police Background Check and Child Abuse Registry
After an applicant has been contacted with a volunteer placement, they are required to provide a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Check as part of Folklorama's screening process for volunteer applications. Any questions can be direct to Katie Green, Coordinator, Member & Festival Services, at email@example.com.
