Spe­cial to the Post

The RCMP is look­ing for mo­ti­vated and ded­i­cated women to join our team. Learn how you can be part of Canada’s na­tional po­lice force at a spe­cial re­cruit­ing pre­sen­ta­tion for women.

From Con­sta­ble to Com­mis­sioner, any­thing is pos­si­ble for the proud and ded­i­cated women who serve in this his­toric or­ga­ni­za­tion. Since 1974, women have made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions as RCMP of­fi­cers in ev­ery part of Canada and around the world. They have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the com­mu­nity while en­joy­ing vast op­por­tu­ni­ties for growth and de­vel­op­ment in dozens of spe­cial­ized units.

At present, 21.5 per cent of RCMP po­lice of­fi­cers are women. The RCMP is com­mit­ted to in­creas­ing the num­ber of fe­male of­fi­cers to 30 per cent to bet­ter rep­re­sent the com­mu­ni­ties we serve across the coun­try.

A “Women in Polic­ing” Ca­reer Pre­sen­ta­tion is a unique op­por­tu­nity to meet with re­cruiters and hear real life ca­reer ex­pe­ri­ences from fe­male po­lice of­fi­cers who are proud to wear the RCMP uni­form. A re­cruit­ing of­fi­cer will also out­line the process to ap­ply, the ben­e­fits and re­wards of a ca­reer in polic­ing, pro­vide ad­vice and an­swer ques­tions.

The pre­sen­ta­tion is on: Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 14th, 2018, 1800 HRS

• Com­pet­i­tive salary and ben­e­fits: RCMP po­lice of­fi­cers have great salary po­ten­tial and stan­dard force ben­e­fits in­clude med­i­cal, den­tal, and life in­sur­ance, and the best ma­ter­nity and parental al­lowances in the coun­try.

• Guar­an­teed em­ploy­ment af­ter grad­u­a­tion: Once you’ve grad­u­ated from the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice Acad­emy, you im­me­di­ately start your ca­reer in Gen­eral Duty Polic­ing.

• Over 150 ca­reer spe­cial­iza­tions: Af­ter only three years of Gen­eral Duty Polic­ing, you can ex­plore a vast range of spe­cial­ized ca­reer paths.

• Paid cadet train­ing: Cadets at the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice Train­ing Acad­emy re­ceive paid train­ing from their very first day.

• Travel and de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties: You will be­gin your ca­reer by work­ing in Canada and may have the op­por­tu­nity to work abroad in For­eign Mis­sions, or in spe­cial­iza­tions rang­ing from Foren­sics to Cybercrime In­tel­li­gence.

• Pre-Post­ing:

To meet or­ga­ni­za­tional needs, ap­pli­cants from Bri­tish Columbia, Al­berta, Saskatchewan or Man­i­toba will have the op­por­tu­nity to se­lect their home prov­ince for their first post fol­low­ing grad­u­a­tion. The RCMP’s op­er­a­tional needs will con­tinue to de­ter­mine the ex­act lo­ca­tion of a post­ing. Ap­pli­cants will­ing to re­lo­cate any­where within Canada will still have that op­tion and their re­lo­ca­tion will also be based on or­ga­ni­za­tional needs.

“A ca­reer with the RCMP of­fers the chance to have a daily pos­i­tive im­pact on Cana­dian com­mu­ni­ties.

Fe­male and male po­lice of­fi­cers bring dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives to polic­ing that pro­vide a bal­anced ap­proach to re­solv­ing prob­lems and de­vel­op­ing re­la­tion­ships with the com­mu­ni­ties we serve. We be­lieve that the more di­verse we are when it comes to gen­der, eth­nic back­ground, re­li­gion or sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion, the bet­ter we are able to serve all Cana­di­ans.

The RCMP has been keep­ing com­mu­ni­ties safe since 1873. To do our job, we need highly mo­ti­vated team play­ers who pos­sess strong lead­er­ship abil­i­ties from a wide range of back­grounds. A uni­form with your name on it is wait­ing for you.”
