Media Invitation – Border Security and Integrity Awareness and Information Day

February 16, 2017
Montréal, Quebec

Media Advisory


Police officers at the border

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Quebec would like to invite the media to a day of information and awareness about border security and integrity.

Over the past few months, the number of migrants crossing the Canada-US border illegally has increased significantly in Quebec, Manitoba and British Columbia. However, the biggest increase has been recorded in Quebec. The RCMP must use all available resources - human, material and technological - to deal with the flow of migrants.

All media representatives interested in this matter are invited to come and meet our spokespersons on Monday, February 20, 2017. They will have the opportunity to learn more about the field work performed by our police officers and partners assigned to border protection.

For more details and to confirm your attendance, please contact Corporal François Gagnon on or before February 17th, 4:00 p.m.
