The (CACP) Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police was founded in Toronto on
September 6, 1905. It was first known as the “Chief Constables Association of
Canada” and adopted its current name in the early 1950s. It was incorporated by
Letters Patent under Part II of the Canada Corporations Act in 1968 as a
non-profit organization. The Association received its ‘Certificate of
Continuance’ from Industry Canada under the Canada Not-for-profit
Corporations Act in January 11, 2013.
The Association is dedicated to the support and promotion of efficient law enforcement and to the protection and security of the people of Canada. Much of the work in pursuit of its new mandate, developed in 2013 (August 19, source: https://cacp.ca/about-cacp.html?asst_id=69), “safety and security for all Canadians through innovative police leadership”, is done through the activities and special projects of a number of committees and through active liaison with various levels of government and departmental ministries having legislative and executive responsibility in law and policing."
