Civilian Members Application Process

Application Process

The RCMP is committed to building a skilled and diverse workforce, reflective of Canadian society, and promoting and supporting equity within its employment practices. Becoming a civilian member of the RCMP begins when you apply to a specific job opportunity.

When you apply, your application will be considered against all of the position's criteria. If you meet the requirements, you may be asked to participate in an job-related interview.

Successful candidates must then:

  • provide reference checks; and
  • complete a security clearance / suitability interview (you will be asked to provide your birth certificate, proof of education, and certification of Canadian citizenship if not born in Canada).

Depending on the position, you may be required to meet further standards including:

  • a job-related competency assessment;
  • a second language evaluation; and/or
  • a medical/health assessment.

Successful candidates may then be sworn in as Civilian Members of the RCMP and be governed by the RCMP Act.
