The Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience (DICE) is a new RCMP recruitment and retention initiative focused on removing barriers that impact racialized and underrepresented groups who aspire to join the RCMP.

  • Newcomers to Canada (that is new Canadian citizens or permanent residents)
  • Persons from diverse ethnic and cultural groups
  • Individuals from racialized groups and communities
  • Persons from all employment equity seeking groups

There are two parts to the Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience program:

  1. Applicants are paired with an RCMP employee mentor who will provide their mentee with support and insight into a career with the RCMP. Mentors will assist Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience candidates with the Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience application process, the training experience, and police officer application process should they choose to apply.
  2. The program also provides a three-week training session hosted at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division, in Regina, Saskatchewan for candidates who are identified to benefit most from the experience.

As a Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience candidate, you'll learn:

  • how to work as part of a policing team
  • an introduction to the Criminal Code and RCMP policy
  • physical fitness and drill
  • skills to help prepare you to apply to be a police officer

Candidates who complete the training experience will receive ongoing support and guidance from the Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience team as they go through the RCMP's police officer application process. By completing the Diverse and Inclusive Pre-Cadet Experience training, candidates will have completed some of the steps of the police officer application process, and their applicant files will reflect the completion of these steps.

Requirements to apply

  • be 19 years of age or older
  • be a Canadian citizen or have permanent resident status in Canada
  • be of good character
  • be able to pass an enhanced reliability security check
  • be in good physical condition
