Work environment

Federal Policing (FP) is a core responsibility of the RCMP that is carried out in every province and territory in Canada, as well as internationally. Federal Policing is 100 years old. Our multi-faceted mandate remains constant – to protect Canada, its people and its interests against the greatest domestic and international criminal threats, with authorities provided under more than 250 federal statutes and Acts of Parliament.

Who we are:
More than five thousand FP employees work across Canada and around the world. All employees are policing professionals who contribute to ensuring the safety and security of Canadians and Canadian institutions, domestically and globally, through intelligence-based detection, investigation, prevention, and enforcement measures.

What we do:
FP enforces federal laws, secures Canada’s border, collects criminal intelligence and ensures the safety of critical infrastructure, internationally protected persons, other designated persons, and democratic institutions.

FP addresses the most serious and complex criminal threats to the safety and security of Canadians and Canadian interests, including democratic institutions, economic integrity, and physical and cyber infrastructure. Through FP, the RCMP prevents, detects, and investigates national security, cybercrime, and transnational and serious organized crime, including financial crime.
