Part of a PCC registration, a new campus registration, or change of location application review process is an inspection of the premises where the vocational program(s) is to be delivered. This inspection is arranged directly with the applicant/campus administrator ahead of time.

While on site and based on the inspection type, PCC Branch Inspectors assigned to the PCC portfolio complete a thorough review and report on the facility. An inspection checklist is completed and the form is signed electronically by the campus administrator to confirm the completion of a site visit by the inspector.

The PCC is emailed when the inspection report is available for their review and action. If the report identifies any compliance issues, directions, and timelines, the organization must respond to the compliance issues in PARIS. Failure to satisfy the compliance issues may result in the organization registration, campus registration, or change of location application being rejected or refused.

Compliance inspections are also conducted to assess a registered private career college’s compliance with recordkeeping and maintenance requirements set out by the Act; however, this type of inspection is not scheduled or announced beforehand.
