Indigenous Policing in Canada

Issues and Successes

Our Vision

Canadian policing is recognized for service to the public through its adherence to best in class standards of evidence-based training and  education for police recruits and officers.

The College's new national certification criteria are adopted across Canada.  C-CPR’s national certification criteria are universally adopted.


To achieve the creation of the Canadian College of Professional Policing  through the education of community representatives, police practitioners,  academics and government officials. 

  • To educate Canadians about police training, standards of training and professional practice  

  • To impart that education using knowledgeable presentations by scholars and qualified experts applying best principles of adult education

  • To continually assess and improve our training methods

Who Are We?

The Coalition for Canadian Police Reform is Canadian Registered Charity. Our goal is to educate Canadians about the need for professionalization of policing through national standards and a 21st Century curriculum.

There is overwhelming evidence of a need for transformation in how police officers in Canada are educated and trained.   We bring together relevant stakeholders – citizens representing all parts of Canada and representing the diversity of our nation, police, researchers and politicians  – to discuss what police officers need to know to effectively police in the 21st century.  We believe that citizens reflecting the diversity of Canada should have a part to play in the police recruit curriculum.

We are NOT about defunding.
