Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience

The Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience (DICE) is a new RCMP recruitment & retention initiative focused on removing systemic barriers that impact racialized and underrepresented persons who aspire to join the RCMP.

  • Newcomers to Canada (i.e. new Canadian citizens or permanent residents)
  • Persons from diverse ethnic and cultural groups
  • Members from a visible minority and persons from racialized communities

The program is a three-week training session hosted at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division, in Regina, Saskatchewan.

  • how to work as part of a policing team
  • an introduction to the Criminal Code and RCMP policy
  • physical fitness and drill
  • skills to help prepare you to apply to be a police officer

Once candidates have completed the program there is ongoing support and guidance as they go through the RCMP's police officer application process.

  • recently (within 3 years) immigrated to Canada
  • Have permanent resident status in Canada
