Join Eeyou Eenou Police Force Team
Joining the Eeyou Eenou Police Force is a great way to be involved in the well-being of your community and Eeyou Istchee. Cree communities have their own needs in law enforcement. We believe in community policing: more support and fewer arrests. Using our language and traditional communication makes a difference for everyone involved. That’s why we are asking you to be part of the solution. Get involved and help us make our communities healthier and safer.
EEPF is changing the face of policing with new approaches, community-based solutions, and strong community partnerships. We’re looking for recruits with a passion for community policing who want to build a satisfying and exciting career in policing. At EEPF, you can have a rewarding career with purpose.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goal of becoming an EEPF Officer.
You may apply if you have a diploma of basic training in police patrolling from the École nationale de police du Quebec (police academy, ÉNPQ) or if you are in the process of obtaining one.
EEPF offers salaries that are competitive. An Officer can add to their base salary through different premiums: overtime, seniority premiums, growth premiums, night shift premiums, etc. In addition to salaries and premiums, Officers enjoy other benefits. For example, leaves, employee insurance, pension plan, special allowance, and employee assistance programs are just a sample of what we offer to improve the quality of life and well-being of our Officers.
We call ourselves Eeyou. Our land - Eeyou Istchee - which means the People’s Land. Eeyou Istchee is home to over 18,000 people. With its language, traditions, and customs still vibrant and alive, you will live a wonderful cultural immersion. Cree language, iiyiyuu ayimuun, is very much alive and spoken by our people. Most of our community members are bilingual - Cree and English - and French is also spoken by some. There are currently nine (9) Cree communities incorporated into our Treaty - the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. In each of these communities, we have a police detachment where you can be proud to serve.
Not all career path in policing is the same, but if you have the right skills, you may see yourself progress through EEPF’s ranks. While employed, you'll receive on-going training, support, and guidance to ensure you're fully equipped to do your job safely and confidently. When it comes to career choices, you have community-based policing; and for experienced Officers, we have investigation, operational support, and Senior Officer roles.
For general inquiries, call your local detachment during regular business hours: Monday to Thursday, 8:30am to 12:00pm, 1:00pm to 4:30, and Friday from 8:30am to 1:00pm.
