Who Are We?

The Coalition for Canadian Police Reform is incorporated in Canada as a non-profit. Our goal is to educate Canadians about the professionalization of policing, and elevate policing within Canada. 

We are a group of concerned individuals who believe there is overwhelming evidence of a need for transformation in how police officers in Canada are educated and trained.   We are bringing together relevant stakeholders – community members, police, researchers, and politicians  – to talk about what police officers need to know to effectively police in the 21st century.  We believe that citizens reflecting the diversity of Canada should have input into curriculum.

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional territories of the many First Nations, M├ętis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.  An important step in reconciliation is our acknowledgment of traditional land.
