How long will it take to get the card?
The length of time needed to complete a WWC check varies.
Majority of cards are received in about 2 weeks.
In the meantime, your receipt is proof of your WWC.
The WWC is legislation; therefore there are penalties for eligible volunteers and/or paid employees, who do not have a valid check.
