2. Inuit cultural awareness training (online)
The training developed by the Sentinel North Research Chair on the Relations with Inuit Societies (Laval University) aims at preparing new police officers to work and live in Nunavik. You will receive basic information about intercultural working relationships, Nunavik and Inuit culture and history. The training lasts approximately three hours and includes an evaluation at the end.
The results of your evaluation will be sent to the NPS. You must pass this step as it is eliminatory.
The interview consists of approximately ten questions and lasts a maximum of one hour. It consists of questions that aim to get to know you better, behavioural questions and short situational questions. The purpose of the interview is to evaluate certain competencies.
The competencies evaluated are :
- Oral communication
- Interpersonal relationships
- Autonomy and decision making
- Sense of responsibility
- Integrity and ethics
Please note that the result of the interview combined with your qualitative file will allow us to decide whether or not to continue the process.
4. Security and Integrity Screening
You must complete a security accreditation to verify that you meet the security and integrity criteria of the Nunavik Police Service. More specifically, this process will determine whether you demonstrate irreproachable behaviour in your personal, professional and social life. To this end, you must agree to have your criminal, penal, financial, driving and other police or relevant information checked. You will be expected to be honest and transparent.
5. Overall analysis of the file
The overall analysis of your file is the last step in the selection process. It consists of a complete evaluation of your application. A final recommendation for hiring is then issued.
In addition to the five steps, candidates who do not have a diploma from a recognized police academy and who wish to attend Depot training must complete the following steps.
6. Signing of the agreement
If you are selected to continue in the hiring process, we will send you a Cadet Employment Agreement and Promise to Hire as a Constable. This agreement defines the terms and conditions of your training and subsequent employment. You must sign the agreement before proceeding to the next step.
7. RCMP Security Screening (in parallel with steps 8 and 9)
We will submit your file to the RCMP, who will conduct a security screening to obtain a reliability status. Since this process can take several weeks, steps 8 and 9 will be done in parallel.
8. Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) (in parallel with steps 7 and 9)
Since you will be required to pass the PARE within your first two weeks at Depot, you will be asked to provide proof that you have passed the test within the last 12 months before you are given your training start date.
