4. A permit applicant or permit holder must ensure that no person of full age working in the applicant’s or holder’s facility during the hours when childcare services are provided, including a trainee or volunteer who is present on a regular basis, has an impediment related to the abilities and conduct required to hold a position in a childcare centre or a day care centre, unless the impediment relates to an indictable or criminal offence other than an offence listed in Schedule 2 to the Criminal Records Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. C-47) for which a pardon has been granted.
The same applies, with the necessary modifications, to the home childcare coordinating office staff members assigned to manage the office, to recognize or to monitor or provide technical and pedagogical support to the home childcare providers the office has recognized.
Before being hired, those persons must consent in writing to an investigation of the information needed to verify the existence of such an impediment and provide to the permit applicant or permit holder or coordinating office, as the case may be, a copy of the consent to investigation to allow the applicant, holder or coordinating office to ensure that the consent allows investigation of all the information listed in the second paragraph of section 27 of the Act. Those persons must also, if applicable, consent to communication of the attestation establishing that no impediment exists to the permit applicant, permit holder or coordinating office, as the case may be, or submit the attestation of information that may establish an impediment to the applicant, holder or office for assessment, after examining the attestation and if they maintain their application.
This section also applies to a person who regularly transports children on behalf of a permit holder.
