reach out to potential applicants from all backgrounds interested in a career
with Canada's National Police Service.
"The RCMP offers a challenging and exciting career to those interested in
making a difference in their communities and their country. The RCMP offers
work from coast to coast - and around the world - from small town policing to
large, high-profile investigations," explains Cst. Kenneth Ishmael, a
Recruiting Officer for the Toronto area. "Despite the current economic
situation in our country, the RCMP plans to hire 1,700 police officers this
"The career possibilities are incredible, and we offer job security and
an attractive pay and benefits package," adds Ishmael. "This is a great
opportunity to learn about the RCMP, our application process, and to speak
one-on-one with police officers from various specialized units."
Cst. Ishmael says that potential applicants are pleased to learn that
cadets are now paid a $500 weekly training allowance while in training and
that a diploma in police foundations is not a pre-requisite for applying.
The public and the media are invited to learn why the RCMP offers a
career nowhere near ordinary.
