You will make a difference
in your community and country,
working with great people

Policing allows you to do work that matters to you, and the colleagues you work with. People typically call the police on the worst days of their lives. When you respond, you have an opportunity to make their day and life better, working with other people you trust like family who care about you and the work you do together.

No two days are the same.
Policing is a career offering
variety and excitement.

Every day is different – this is not a typical 9 to 5 job. When you get a call or a new file, you often don’t know what will happen next. You need to use your training, risk-assessment and problem-solving skills to stay safe and effective. There’s a new challenge every day.

Career and travel opportunities
are almost endless.

There are hundreds of specialty roles across Canada within the RCMP in communities ranging from cities to hamlets. If you work hard and smart, you can pursue anything from forensics to Emergency Response to financial fraud to major crimes to international postings and have the opportunity to travel our beautiful country and beyond.

The National Police Federation has your back.

The National Police Federation is the union for all sworn RCMP Members below the rank of Inspector. We are a strong, progressive, and committed union that will have your back. We recently negotiated the RCMP’s first-ever Collective Agreement ensuring RCMP Members get fair and competitive compensation compared to other Canadian police. We have a 24/7 Member Services Centre available to help you and representatives available across the country.
