Celebrating Pride 2023

June 1, 2023
Ottawa, Ontario


As summer begins, RCMP employees are excited to participate in Pride celebrations across the country. This month, the RCMP recognizes Pride month alongside members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and their allies in a celebration of inclusivity. While our commitment to inclusivity is year-round and unending, Pride is a special occasion.

While our relationship with 2SLGBTQIA+ communities within and outside the organization has at times been difficult, the RCMP is committed to change. Our goal is to create an inclusive workplace that embraces individual differences, is welcoming to all and fosters a sense of belonging. Our organization is proud to support concrete actions to encourage diversity and inclusive practices and a work environment where diverse communities feel welcomed. Read more about some of our efforts towards inclusion.

Everyone should feel appreciated and valued, not just for the work they do, but also for who they are as individuals. By building an inclusive workplace, we're ensuring there's a place for you in the RCMP. It could be in a remote detachment in Canada or on an international peacekeeping mission abroad, in a forensics lab or on the Musical Ride.

When we focus on diversity, we can more effectively represent the people we proudly serve and continue to foster trust and confidence. By acting with integrity, showing respect, and serving with excellence, and by supporting Pride month, we're supporting our commitment to one another.

Have a happy Pride Month!
