We’re a union that works to keep Canadians safe every day.

We are parole and program officers, tradespeople, frontline staff and teachers, who work inside and outside the federal prison system.

We also support the day-to-day operations of hundreds of RCMP detachments.

Across 17 federal departments nationwide, we protect the privacy and security of Canadians as well as help provide access to information, justice and human rights.

The ways we keep Canadians safe aren’t always obvious, but they are important. Here are a few examples of our impact:

We dispatch Mounties
when there’s an emergency.
We help inmates upgrade
their education and teach them
useful trades and life skills.
We handle evidence
for the RCMP.
We help Canadians
register their firearms.
We monitor and report
on natural disasters
across the country.
We monitor and
supervise offenders
in the community.
