We’re Hiring – Join the RCMP! “Women in Policing” Career Presentation

Calgary, Alberta – Learn how you can put ordinary behind you at a special recruiting presentation for women interested in a career like no other.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) offers meaningful work, vast opportunities and the chance to serve in communities across Canada where you can make a real difference in people’s lives. The RCMP is committed to actively recruiting women to ensure its membership better reflects the communities it serves.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the RCMP’s first women officers. A 32-member female troop began training in 1974 and forged the path that has led to nearly 4,000 female police officers today, or just over 20% of the sworn ranks. The RCMP is committed to increasing that to 30% by 2025.

During the “Women in Policing” presentation, you will learn about some of the more than 150 different types of policing opportunities within the RCMP and hear from women who’ve donned the RCMP uniform. A recruiting officer will also outline the recruiting process step-by-step, provide advice and answer questions.

The presentation is on:
