Security Clearance 2016-2021 IMPORTANT

In November 2016, I have requested and received my renewed security clearance valid until 2021. Because my position involves working with children or vulnerable persons, I feel it is important that I can provide this security check if asked to. A vulnerable sector check is an enhanced criminal record check. I renew mine every 5 years as required.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions by contacting me at Thank You. Joseph Robert Pierre Trépanier.

More information on this Security Check.

People who have jobs where they are in positions of trust or authority over children or vulnerable persons can be asked to obtain a vulnerable sector check. (Being in a position of trust or authority is more than just having contact with children or vulnerable persons. To meet the legal requirements for a vulnerable sector check the nature of the position – not the person – must cause the person to have authority over, or trust of, children or vulnerable persons.) Children are defined as being anyone under the age of 18. Vulnerable persons are people who, because of their age, disability or other circumstance, are more vulnerable than others What are vulnerable sector checks? A vulnerable sector check is an enhanced criminal record check. This type of record check was created in 2000 to protect children and vulnerable persons and is governed by section 6.3(3) of the Criminal Records Act. Policies and procedures related to vulnerable sector checks can be found in the Dissemination of Criminal Record Information policy and the Ministerial Directive Concerning the Release of Criminal Record Information by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

  1. Hi Pierre,

    So if I’m semi-fluent you seem (with your E rating) as though you could take me the rest of the way? I’m so glad you are fluent in English, learning from a tutor who doesn’t know MY language fluently can be very frustrating!

    So let me please get some more information from you. Is Canadian French that different from the French I would find in Europe? Are you accent free? Can you help me with my French conjugations to learn how to speak like I was a native French speaker?

    Let me know a bit more, this is very exciting to me as I want to perfect and become fluent in French as soon as possible.


    1. Bonjour Christian,

      I would say that I am tri-lingual as I can speak French with little to no accent (everyone has an accent to a point) or if needed, I can speak French using a lot of Canadian expressions. I can help with any aspects you want.

      Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

      Kindest of regards
      Á bientôt.
