Matrimonial Real Property

The First Nations Chiefs of Police Association (FNCPA) was formed as a not-for-profit organization on January 7, 1993. The mandate of the FNCPA is to serve First Nations police services and First Nations territories across Canada by facilitating the highest level of professionalism and accountability, in a manner that reflects the unique cultures, constitutional status, social circumstances, traditions, and aspirations of First Nations. The FNCPA speaks as one voice to advance and sustain self-administered First Nations' policing in Canada, by aiding and developing innovative methods to enhance public safety and wellness, while embracing our communities' unique cultural and traditional values.

This course is designed specifically for First Nations police services as an introduction to Matrimonial Real Property (MRP) issues, legislation, and policing on First Nations territories.
