The Canadian Police Association (CPA) is an umbrella organization that represents over 60,000 civilian and sworn front-line law enforcement professionals from across Canada. Our members serve every municipal and provincial police service, First Nations police agencies, the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railway police, and we look forward to including personnel from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as they certify their own, independent association. On behalf of our members, we work in a non-partisan fashion with Members of Parliament from all political parties to advocate for policies that promote public safety while improving the health and safety of those who serve their communities. Our members regularly appear before Parliamentary Committees to offer expert testimony during the consideration of legislation, and are always available to facilitate meetings with Parliamentarians in their home ridings to provide a local policing perspective on important issues. Over the course of the 42nd Parliament, we have been proud to work with Parliamentarians on a number of key issues, including the recently implemented regime to legalize marijuana for recreational use and the adoption of a national strategy to address the unique mental health challenges faced by our country’s first responders. We appreciate that Members of the House of Commons and Senate, from all parties, have worked with Canada’s public police professionals to ensure that the public safety of our communities is a key consideration during the policy development process, and we look forward to continuing that engagement.
The Durham Regional Police Association has been honoured to host the Annual Ontario Police Memorial golf tournament, which, over the past nine years, has raised over $192,000 for the Ontario Police Memorial Foundation through its participants and generous sponsors.
We regretfully advise both our long-time and more recent participants and supporters this year’s tournament will be postponed until 2019 due to the withdrawal of our major sponsor.
Without the sponsorship of this major company, the tournament is no longer a fiscally viable venture and with such short notice, we are unable to secure another sponsor who is able to provide the support we require to ensure a successful event. As a result, registrations and payments that have been received for this year’s event will be returned.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, we will be reorganizing the tournament and look forward to your participation next year.
On behalf of the DRPA Board of Directors,
Colin Goodwin & Andrew Tummonds
