JUSTIFICATION

September 2019 - The available data from the RCMP, Global Affairs Canada and Public Security show that Canada is expanding training to include community policing, gender and human rights perspectives in training. Some initiatives are bilateral ones, such as the Ukraine mission. However, UN data reveals that Canada is not engaged much in policing peace operations. Many other countries, large and small, have greater commitments. In order to "lead an international effort to improve and expand the training of military and civilian personnel deployed on peace operations", one would expect Canada to have a higher level of engagement and deployment.

[…] Canada is uniquely placed to provide the very best expertise across the full spectrum of peace operations. Therefore, Canada’s PSOPs and future contributions will focus more on the areas of early warning, conflict prevention, dialogue, mediation and peacebuilding, and the empowerment of women in decision making for peace and security." - Canada to support peace operations - Global Affairs Canada
