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.

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 certification standards are adopted across Canada.


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


Presenting the 1st Annual Coalition for Canadian Police Reform Conference – This year’s conference will be a digital-first experience on our customized virtual platform with an immersive look and feel that will engage our delegates from start to finish. The conference will offer a platform for 200-500 participants from across Canada who care deeply about our country and our democracy to discuss important issues on policing in Canada.

Presented by Reboot Communications and the Coalition for Canadian Police Reform, this three-day digital-first conference will provide knowledge about the elements of police training our officers require to be better able to maintain the peace in the 21st Century. We anticipate everyone will be engaged in thoughtful discussion about the possibilities to uplift and support our police officers. The conference will be of interest to the public, police officers and academics researching police and crime topics.

Never before have citizens of Canada met together with police executives and academic professors! This is a unique opportunity whereby the diversity of thought and the mixing of minds could generate transformative perspectives. Your participation is key to the success of the event!

We need to analyze the way forward and plan constructively for how change might happen.  How can police officers be uplifted and supported in their work?

Citizens will be part of a conversation about if, how and why policing should become more professional like accounting, lawyering or doctoring.  Citizens will be able to express their perspectives about the knowledge and skills that should be included in police training.

Police officers will learn the perspectives of citizens and how those match up with their own ideas about the people skills every officer needs to practice “peace-keeping” instead of “peace-making”.

Academics will deliver short addresses that fill in the knowledge of how police learn and work today.
