PMHA will automatically receive a clearance letter.

Once you have submitted your CRC online please send the confirmation to: The Volunteer Director at pmha.volunteers@gmail.com   To avoid delay try to fill in as much information as possible, when you submit the request the system will ask you a few questions to confirm your identity.

Some volunteers will not be able to complete their CRC online and will need to submit their CRC in person, if you need to submit this way please send the Volunteer Director an email with your full legal name so a letter may be prepared for you to take to your local police station to obtain a CRC at no charge.
