COVID‑19 Pandemic

The physical office still remains closed to visitors until further notice.

However, our office continues to be operational during normal working hours. You can continue to submit a complaint at any time.

The Military Police Complaints Commission of Canada (MPCC) is an independent, civilian, quasi-judicial oversight agency that operates at arm’s length from the Government of Canada. The Commission reviews and investigates complaints concerning military police conduct and investigates allegations of interference in military police investigations. It reports its findings and makes recommendations directly to the military police and national defence leadership. As a federal institution, it is part of the Defence portfolio for reporting purposes.
