Revocation of the Emergencies Act

February 23, 2022
Ottawa, Ontario


On February 23, 2022, the declaration of a public order emergency under the Emergencies Act was revoked.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) remains committed to working with our law enforcement partners to ensure the safety and security of Canadians.

The Integrated Command Centre comprising the Ottawa Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police and the RCMP will remain activated for an indeterminate amount of time, furthering the collaborative efforts that have taken place to date.

The RCMP will continue to actively and closely follow the situation related to the various illegal protest activities across Canada, keep a constant state of preparedness and have scalable resources available if needed.

The revocation of the public order emergency takes nothing away from our resolve to effectively enforce the law and keep communities safe.
