National Headquarters - 2016 success stories

The success stories highlighted in this report are just a few examples of how the RCMP demonstrates its commitment to the Government of Canada's Public Service Renewal initiative. Through innovative initiatives and programs, the RCMP works with its partners, connects with communities and supports its people in order to keep Canadians safe.


The National Youth Advisory Committee

In 2016, the RCMP once again recruited new members for its National Youth Advisory Committee (NYAC). NYAC engages and empowers youth via RCMP initiatives across the country. Its members help shape what the RCMP offers for young people by: identifying issues affecting youth; addressing community concerns; and designing initiatives to foster change and address their needs. NYAC is a key initiative that connects the RCMP with youth across the country to talk about community youth issues and solutions.


The RCMP Mentorship Program

Providing employees with leadership guidance to help them in their work and careers is one of the ways the RCMP supports its people. RCMP National Headquarters is one of several areas within the RCMP that have launched the Mentorship program. The program brings together regular members, civilian members and public service employees to help build leadership, accountability, and personal growth. Mentorship also contributes to improving morale in the workplace, nurturing relationships by encouraging employees to unplug and connect with each other, as well as helps remove cultural and gender barriers in the workplace.
