Collaborate with your Peers

The CAPG’s Annual Conference is the largest gathering of police boards in Canada and serves as the principal vehicle for dialogue between the many different stakeholders in governance.

Learn from the Experts

Home to the top police governance specialists and leaders, CAPG Governance Conference is an essential learning opportunity.

Create Change

This is a unique opportunity for police leaders across Canada to learn from each other, share best practices, and talk about how to achieve positive change in the sector.


Be a part of this vital conversation on how to improve policing.

Over the course of 4 days, both virtual and in-person delegates will engage in a thoughtfully curated program of plenary sessions, panel discussions, workshops, and roundtables with a keen focus on new ideas and problem-solving around key issues facing policing today. The first day of our conference will be devoted to issues and innovations relevant to First Nations police governance bodies, followed by 3 days of general governance programming.
