The work of a peace officer requires a higher physical capacity than the average population. Indeed, you may be called to respond to various emergency situations or control fraudulent individuals. To determine if you are capable to perform physically demanding tasks of the profession and to prevent injuries at work, it is essential to make a physical aptitude test. PARE test was developed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for the purpose of measuring the physical abilities of police recruits, to ensure that you have the minimum capacity required for the job.

The PARE is for people in the hiring process for the following organizations: Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Parks Canada and International Police Peace Operations Program.

Notice for RCMP candidates : Since May 1st 2016, you no longer have the obligation to perform the PARE test in the hiring process of the RCMP. The PARE test will now be done during your training at the RCMP Training Academy in Regina, Saskatchewan. However, if you want to perform the PARE test in an «unofficial» context, it is possible to do so. We also offer practice sessions. These can be very useful to better prepare you for your training in Regina.
