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.
