Membership is open to all who are involved in law enforcement chaplaincy whether full time, part time or volunteer.
Chaplains who wish to become a member of the CPCA should make application to the CPCA Registrar. The following criteria will be required for full membership:
Completed application form and membership fee;
Written endorsement or letter of appointment from a senior officer of the law enforcement agency under which the chaplain is currently serving;
Written character reference, or an endorsement from the faith community the chaplain is serving (if applicable).
A Retired police chaplain who had membership with the CPCA for at least 5 years prior to retirement and who retired in good standing, may apply for continued membership with the same privileges and opportunities afforded to active members.
An Affiliate Member or a Liaison Officer status, without voting privilege, is available to individuals such as police chaplains serving outside Canada, law enforcement personnel or others whose application for affiliate or liaison status is approved by the executive committee.
