About the RCMP in National Division

The RCMP National Division's office is in Ottawa but, contrary to other RCMP Divisions, its mandate has no physical territory.

The RCMP in the National Capital Region (NCR) has a general duty mandate. This includes traffic on federal routes and properties, patrolling and demonstrations.

We protect the Prime Minister and some Canadian and foreign dignitaries (VIPs). We also protect embassies, consulates and other designated locations in the NCR.

We also investigate a variety of sensitive, high profile cases that could threaten Canada's integrity and reputation; for example, cybercrime, domestic and international corruption, war crimes and crimes against humanity, to name a few.
