RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police)

As a RCMP police officer, you will work to prevent and solve crime, enforce federal, provincial/territorial, and municipal law, build and maintain relationships with communities, and above all, keep Canadians safe. 

The RCMP is seeking motivated team players who are strong communicators, enjoy working with diverse communities, are physically fit and possess strong leadership abilities. All applicants must reflect the core values of the RCMP. These include integrity, honesty, professionalism, compassion, respect and accountability. Do you have these qualities?

The RCMP offers an exceptional career, letting you make a real difference in local communities and on the national and international stage. No other police force in Canada provides the levels of services and variety offered by the RCMP, as well as opportunities for continued learning and growth.

Policing is a 24-hour-per-day necessity and you should expect to work shifts, including nights, evenings, weekends and holidays.
