Aboriginal Cadet Program

INDIGENOUS Cadet PrograM

In 2004, the VPD signed an agreement with the British Columbia Aboriginal Workforce Strategy (BCAWS) and the Province of British Columbia to promote employment and career development opportunities. This lead to the development of the Aboriginal Cadet Program, now called the Indigenous Cadet Program, which is open to anyone of Indigenous ancestry who would gain from this experience. It is currently funded by the Aboriginal Community Career Employment Services Society.

The program runs from June until the end of August. Successful applicants will spend half their time working with the VPD fleet services and the other half "riding along" with various sections within the Department. The pay is approximately $26.00/hour.

The VPD is looking for applicants that meet the following basic requirements:

  • 19 to 29 years of age
  • Indigenous ancestry
  • Grade 12 diploma or equivalent
  • Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • valid Class 5 drivers licence with no restrictions and a good driving record
  • no criminal convictions, no adult criminal charges pending

If you or someone you know are interested in applying to the Indigenous Cadet Program, please contact Detective Constable Christian Olver in the VPD Recruiting Unit
