The RCMP s federal policing mandate covers activities including protective policing, international policing, national security investigations, cybercrime and organized crime.
The review will examine federal policing programs, activities and authorities, as well as the roles played by the RCMP s domestic and international partners.
Liberal committee chair David McGuinty says while several reports over the last five years have highlighted significant challenges with the RCMP, none has specifically focused on the national police force s "critical and diverse mandate" in federal policing.
