Would you like to work for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canada's federal police force?

Read about the duties of an RCMP police officer and what such work involves and find out about the qualifications and requirements for applying, physical standards required, salary and benefits, etc.

RCMP police officers also have the opportunity to engage in international policing missions throughout the world: read stories about their experiences abroad and watch a YouTube video to learn more about what they have gained from their missions.

Note that the RCMP also offer career opportunities to civilians, who have an important role to play in delivering services to communities across Canada.
