Every one  we speak with agrees that police recruits need 21st Century knowledge!

Canadians are lucky to live in a country with stability, jobs and the rule of law.

But we cannot be lazy; we must work to keep it that way!

If you agree then you should be a member of C-CPR.  A small investment of $25 annually will help us spread important knowledge about how police training needs to change.

together we can make it happen!

Our Vision

Canadians understand police education and training in Canada and can express an educated opinion about professional policing practice.

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


  • 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 input into the curriculum our recruits learn.

We are NOT about defunding.  We ARE about helping Canadian police officers add skills to their toolbox: knowledge of the diverse cultures of people in Canada.  Police officers also need advanced soft skills - emotional intelligence - so they are able to relate at the best level with everyone they encounter.
