The Community Advancement Program (CAP) is a social cohesion and advancement program designed to provide a safe space for youth through productive interactions and teamwork.




By way of facilitators provided by the Department of Community Development, the RSCNPF, and the community at large, CAP will offer a range of interactive training opportunities and developmental sessions.




CAP will be an ongoing strategic community-based program that endeavours to improve the relationship and trust between youth and law enforcement agencies. The program will also work to instill a sense of responsibility and patriotic pride in the youth through community service and volunteerism.
