First Nation Policing in Canada

First Nations policing in Canada falls primarily under the responsibility of the Federal Government whom, in June1991, introduced the First Nations Policing Program (FNPP).

The policy allows for the establishment of First Nation self administered policing services. Police services are negotiated through community tripartite agreements (CTAs) between the federal government, provincial or territorial governments and First Nations. As a result First Nation communities are policed by either a a self administered police service, or under agreement by the provincial, territorial or other existing police service.

The following links provide additional information on First Nations policing policy and related initiatives in Canada.

1.4 million people across Canada reported Aboriginal identity in 2011.
