Resources - Ontario Screening Initiative

A portion of the Volunteer Screening Manual, Strengthening the Caring Community was completed from the Screening in Faith manual developed by Volunteer Canada, which acts as a reference manual for the procedures in place at the Archdiocese of Toronto.      

  • It is to be noted that Volunteer Canada and the Archdiocese of Toronto do not share pastoral responsibilities or duties and are not legally bound to each other.  
  • We wish to thank Volunteer Canada, the national voice for volunteerism in Canada, for their excellent work and for providing us with great resources.​
