Muaythai Ontario is committed to a safe sporting environment to protect all participants in Muaythai programming, activities, and events. The new Screening Policy, effective immediately, will require an annual Enhanced Police Information Check (E-PIC) through our new Screening Partner, Sterling Talent Solutions. Those over a certain age will require a Vulnerable Sector Check before getting the E-PIC.
Seconds (Coaches & Corners) and Officials should note the new changes to the Membership Process. To get started, follow our questionnaire below to determine what kind of check you need. FAQs are at the bottom of this page.

Frequently Asked Questions
The submission of both the E-PIC and Vulnerable Sector Verification is subject to the same data processing guidelines as all other membership information. The completed checks must be submitted at latest 48 hours prior to an event; if a Check is submitted within 2 – 5 business days prior to an event, a rush fee will be required in order to process the information on time. It’s important to note that if there is an item of concern on a VSV or E-PIC it could take Muaythai Ontario’s Screening Committee up to 30 days to review.
