Indigenous policing and reconciliation
Throughout Canadian history, the RCMP played a significant role in shaping Canada's relationship with Indigenous peoples. Our role continues today, with the intent of rekindling trust and strengthening communications with the more than 600 Indigenous communities we serve. As we move forward, it is important that we acknowledge and learn from the past, evaluate our current actions, and collaborate with Indigenous communities, peoples and employees for the future.
Our reconciliation efforts aim to improve community safety and wellbeing, to enhance investigative standards, and to deliver the highest quality policing services. Efforts are also implemented within the organization to support the over 1,900 Indigenous employees of the RCMP and to inspire a culturally engaged, trauma-informed workforce.
