The CMPA is evolving, and so are the benefits of membership. As a Lifetime Member of the CMPA you may be entitled to the following benefits:
All CMPA members in good standing who retire in receipt of an annuity or are released early with a medical pension may be presented with their original police badge in a shadow box. Where an original is not available, a replica badge inscribed "Retired"’or Retraité/Retraitée will be used in its place. Those who are not released with an annuity will receive a badge inscribed "Veteran" in a shadow box.
"It’s a common practice for police services across Canada to issue special “retirement credentials” to their retired members. All CMPA members in good standing who retire in receipt of an annuity or are released early with a medical pension will qualify to be issued retirement credentials that recognize their unique qualifications and contribution to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and the Canadian policing fraternity. Members in good standing who did not retire, may receive Credentials with "VETERAN" in lieu of "RETIRED"
Each year, the CMPA awards two $1,000 scholarship to spouses or children of members in good standing who are pursuing their first year of full or part time post-secondary education in a university or college program.
