What we do
The RCMP is an iconic Canadian brand recognized throughout the world. Retailers across North America sell a wide range of RCMP licensed product to Canadians, Tourists and RCMP Members. Any RCMP likeness, logo or images are protected intellectual property. No reproduction can be done unless a license is obtained through the RCMP Foundation. Through the licensing program, the RCMP Foundation authorizes the use of the RCMP intellectual property ensuring that it is representative of the iconic stature and quality, ethics and safety are maintained in all manufactured products. The RCMP Foundation generates funds for charity utilizing the 3 methods listed below.
