First Nations and Inuit Policing Facilities Program
Public Safety Canada funds the First Nations and Inuit Policing Facilities Program (FNIPFP) to support better policing infrastructure for the people who live and work in Indigenous communities. These investments will support First Nation and Inuit communities to ensure their policing infrastructure meets building, policing facility, and health and safety standards.
The program is cost-shared 52%-48% with the provinces and territories and will provide funding to repair, renovate, or replace policing facilities owned by First Nation and Inuit communities.
All Canadians deserve properly-funded, culturally sensitive, and respectful police services. Through Budget 2021, the Government of Canada announced significant new investments to support culturally responsive policing in Indigenous communities. This new funding includes $108.6 million over five years, beginning in 2021-2022, to repair, renovate, and replace policing facilities in First Nation and Inuit communities.
Moving forward, Public Safety Canada will continue to engage with Indigenous organizations and communities, as well as provincial and territorial governments, to ensure that Indigenous communities across the country benefit from professional, dedicated, and culturally responsive policing.
