I have been following Steven Unthank's case in Australia and it got me to wondering about the laws in Canada. So, I sent a letter to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection to find out if religious leaders in Canada are required to undergo any type of criminal child abuse registry check. I am a caretaker for a building and my husband and I had to have these checks done, so it makes sense the 'elders' would have to as well. (Although I know they never do).
I will let you know what response I get.
