Force 2.0: Fixing the Governance, Leadership, and Structure of the RCMP

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The government has put out the call for a new Commissioner to lead an RCMP that is confronted with a number of major issues: the impending creation of an independent employee association, increased review from the newly established National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (and potentially a new arm’s-length bureaucratic review body proposed in Bill C-59), and a review of the RCMP’s mandate-contract. The last may even entail the transfer of some border duties to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). In addition, there are ongoing challenges such as allegations of pervasive harassment and bullying as well as a trial on violating the Canada Labour Code.
