People first - Policing excellence - A safer Canada
A safer Canada
The RCMP is more than just a police service. We're part of the fabric of Canada, made up of people who care about their work, their communities and each other. As the RCMP moves toward its 150th anniversary in 2023, we're working to renew, refresh and modernize our organization. We've built a plan and identified initiatives to support our shared vision. Learn more about each initiative and follow our progress.
Modernizing our RCMP
Vision150 is our plan to modernize the RCMP. It's about putting people first, so we can provide the best service we can to communities, to keep Canadians safe and secure.
Our vision responds to the expectations set out in the Commissioner's 2018 mandate letter and forms the core of our strategic direction.
Our Vision150 plan is centred on four themes, each focused on a key area where we see opportunities to modernize and transform the way we work. We have launched specific change initiatives under each theme:
- Our people
- Our culture
- Our stewardship
- Our policing services
Learn more about each theme below.
