Police Checks

Muskoka Woods Police Check Policy:

Because safety is our number one priority, Muskoka Woods requires all staff to submit a police check. Your completed police check is due one month prior to your start date.

If you are a “return staff member” you will need to renew your police check every 3 years.

Canadians who are 18 and over – apply online:

  • Go to muskokawoods.plantoprotectscreening.com
  • We recommend that you use a computer rather than your smartphone
  • Cost – $29.00 + tax = $32.77
  • You will need to upload 2 pieces of identification
  • You should then receive 2 emails – a receipt and a permission confirmation for Muskoka Woods to do a background check on you
  • Chat is available on the site to answer any questions
  • Muskoka Woods will be able to access your results directly  

You may also attend your local police station and obtain your own if you choose. Muskoka Woods requires either an Enhanced Criminal Record Check or a Vulnerable Sector Police Check.

**Please note:  If you turn 18 during your contract with MW, you will be required to apply for a police check on your 18th birthday

If you have any questions, email diane@muskokawoods.com.


You are required to show documentation that states that you do not have a criminal record or charges pending. There are two options for you to consider:

  •  Apply for and obtain a police check from your local police institution. If you choose this route, please scan and send your police check to Diane Huff (diane@muskokawoods.com) and keep the original with your work permit documents to provide to the immigration officer upon arrival into Canada. Once you have arrived at Camp, please give the original document to our Human Resources Department.


  • Apply online through a company called Sterling Talent Solutions/Backcheck.  Muskoka Woods would deduct the cost from your paycheque.  If you wish to go this route, please contact Diane Huff – diane@muskokawoods.com for more information and an invitation link to the portal.
