Benefits of Becoming a CPCA Member
The Canadian Police Chaplain Association is a national association dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of excellence in training and support to police chaplains across Canada. Our goal is to equip police chaplains to serve police officers and their families in practical and spiritual ways. The CPCA recognizes the cultural and spiritual diversity amongst Canadian police officers, and therefore supports police chaplains from a diversity/inclusion perspective. View a PDF Version here.
