Travel Grants

If you are a student attending a course (workshops not applicable) from a provincial, regional or municipal Canadian police service, the Canadian Police College will reimburse the following transportation expenses – original receipts are required in all cases.

  • One return economy ticket (air / train / bus) from your police service to the CPC
  • Ferry and toll fees
  • Taxi fare from local terminals to the CPC (the current taxi rate from the airport is a maximum of $45, tip excluded)
  • Return taxi trip from the CPC to the airport, bus terminal or train station
  • o If you are using your own car, you will be reimbursed for private car mileage for one return trip (using approved Government Travel Directive rates) from your police service to the CPC, up to the lowest airfare equivalent

Travel expense forms will be provided to you during the orientation of the course. The form is to be completed on-site and submitted to your course coordinator prior to final departure. A copy of the approved claim will be provided to you.

Please note that the CPC reserves the right to modify rates as required, without prior notification. The CPC is not responsible for any administrative costs incurred if the participant changes travel dates or for costs for trips to or from home while on course.

Aboriginal Policing Professional Development Fund

The Aboriginal Policing Professional Development Fund (APPDF) is available through the RCMP Foundation and is comprised of donations from corporate sponsors. The purpose of the fund is to make specialized and advanced training provided by the Canadian Police College more readily available to eligible indigenous police officers.

Indigenous police officers who work for a standalone First Nations Police Service, an indigenous police service or who are employed as peace officers through a First Nations Chief and Council are eligible for the fund. The bursary will cover all tuition, meals and accommodation costs for onsite courses at the CPC Ottawa campus.

Please note that, should participants be required to stay at a commercial hotel facility, the candidate will have to pay meals and accommodation costs and submit a cost-recovery claim with the receipts to recover expenses. Meals claims will not exceed those set out in the Government of Canada National Joint Council guidelines in effect at the time.

If you are eligible for the APPDF and would like to register, find out how to apply.
