THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING A PART OF COASTAL SOUND MUSIC!
Our dedicated volunteers and contractors are such a huge part of our success – we are so grateful to have you in the Coastal Sound Music (CSMA) family.
There are important measures that CSMA must undertake to ensure that our members are safe. Criminal Record checks and Drivers Abstracts will be reviewed by the Artistic Director who will then keep them in a secure and private location, until they are no longer needed, at which time, they will be shredded.
CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS
Every 3 years, CSMA contractors, choir managers, chaperones, home stay families and other volunteers working substantively with minors and vulnerable persons with respect to CSMA activities, must obtain and provide to CSMA a security clearance.
To obtain your Criminal Record Check, please note the following steps:
- First, contact us at 604.552.2762 or email@example.com and we will provide you with a letter from Coastal Sound Music that verifies you are a volunteer with us and are required to obtain this check, and they will waive the fee.
- Verify the location of your local RCMP detachment: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/detach/index-eng.htm. Our CSMA verification letter (in step 1) assumes you will be visiting the Coquitlam detachment, but if you live outside of this jurisdiction, please let us know and we will adjust the letter accordingly.
- Bring your letter from Coastal Sound Music along with 2 pieces of government issued identification to your local detachment. They will provide you with the applicable form(s) to be filled out and complete the process.

DRIVERS RECORD ABSTRACT
Every three years, CSMA host members or their representatives who volunteer to drive choir members from other choirs must provide to CSMA a Drivers Record abstract from ICBC. Your driving record, also called a driver’s abstract, is a record of your basic driving history. It lists when your driver’s licence was first issued, plus any driving tickets or other offences you’ve received in the last five years. All driver’s abstracts are provided free of charge and are easy to obtain – please click here for more information on how to get yours.
