Employee diversity statistics

The following charts show the current representation rates of employment equity (EE) groups as of April 1st, 2020, for all categories of employees in the RCMP, within each sworn officer rank, and among RCMP Regular Member applicants. Historical representation rates are also provided to show yearly progression for the past ten years across all categories of employees.

Under the Employment Equity Act (EEA), federally regulated employers are required to survey their workforces to determine the number of individuals who are members of designated EE groups; namely, women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous peoples and persons with disabilities. Self-identification is voluntary on the part of the employee. Employees may identify to more than one group or choose not to identify at all, and must be provided with a means of modifying or removing their self-identification information at any time.
