                  How does the criminal records check work?

                  Validation of criminal records is mandatory in order to preserve the physical and psychological integrity of participants who are minors.

                  Residents of British Columbia will be able to do this verification online with the access code that will be provided to them when their registration form is completed. This process is free.

                  For volunteers residing elsewhere in Canada, they can report to the RCMP office or their local police office. A letter of attestation of volunteer involvement can be provided if necessary. Please make your request to our manager at

                  What are the dates of volunteer involvement?

                  The competitions take place from July 11 to 15, 2023. Participants will arrive on July 10 and leave on July 16.

                  The majority of positions are for competition days, but the organization will have needs in the weeks preceding the games as well as when participants arrive and leave.

                  Candidates interested in supporting the organizing committee before the games are invited to indicate their availability in the registration form in the appropriate section.

                  At what time do the working days start and end?

                  Working hours vary by position and sectors. Shifts are usually divided into morning (7 a.m. to 12 p.m.), afternoon (12 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and evening (5 p.m. to 11 p.m.). The times are given as an indication only because certain sectors such as food services have specific needs to meet the needs of participants.

                  Where should I show up?

                  Most competitions are held at Oak Bay High located in

                  2121 Cadboro Bay Rd. Victoria BC, V8R 5G4.

                  Some competitions are held away from the main competition site.

                  For volunteers who will need to travel to a location other than Oak Bay High School, meeting location information will be shared with you when you receive your schedule.

                  Are meals provided?

                  Snacks and beverages will be available in the volunteer lounge. A meal will be offered to volunteers who do a full day of work.

                  The organizing committee will try to offer a variety of options to meet the needs of volunteers. Given the complexity of certain food allergies and restrictions, the organizing committee does not guarantee that all needs will be met. Please contact the volunteer manager if you have any questions or concerns about this.
