CAPG/FNPGC 2021 Agenda | Register Now!

The CAPG Conference is the leading event in the Police Governance sector. Hosted by the Ottawa Police Services Board and now entering its 32nd year, the Annual CAPG Conference is held over a three-day period during which delegates are encouraged to network, discuss, engage, and discover the rich community we continue to foster.

The events of the last year have left an indelible mark on municipalities across the nation. The pandemic has dramatically changed how communities function and reform demands for policing have only gotten stronger, making it more important than ever that we seek out new modes of operation. In our capacity as change-makers, how can we draw from the lessons learned by other communities to address the complex challenges we face on our own? The 2021 CAPG Conference offers you a unique opportunity to answer this question as well as collaborate with familiar voices of experience and emerging thought leaders in the field of Policing and Police Governance. Stay prepared for the challenges ahead by learning the tools and skills you need to inspire meaningful change in your community.

Among the topics to be covered:

Reimagining Community Safety
Mobilizing Municipalities
Unconscious Bias
Indigenous Relations
Deescalation and Harm Reduction

The First Nations Police Governance Council (FNPGC) was established in 2014 by directors and members of the Canadian Association of Police Governance (CAPG). With a primary focus on building capacity, the FNPGC has developed a national conference for self-administered First Nations Police Governance Authorities, Commissions and Community Consultative Committees.

This one-day event is traditionally held the day before the CAPG Conference and is offered at a discount to CAPG attendees, with an additional price adjustment for CAPG members and First Nations participants.

This year’s speakers and panellists include Chair Dan Bellegarde, FNPGC and Board of Police Commissioners at File Hills First Nations Police Service; Dr. Nicholas (Nick) A.
