About the Program:
In 1873, the Northwest Mounted Police was formed to help police the Dominion of Canada’s new laws, prevent invasion, and help settle the new land in the west.

- Learn about the history and traditions of the force.
- Understand the importance of the force in Canadian History.
- Learn about the relationships between the force and Indigenous Peoples.
