About Canada Beyond The Blue

Canada Beyond The Blue is a peer-led, non-profit organization dedicated to serving spouses & families of police officers in Canada. We strive to promote an awareness of our officer's worth as well as an understanding of the joys and struggles that are uniquely experienced in a life in law enforcement.

Spouses and children of law enforcement officers face a unique set of circumstances that lends itself to the need for emotional support, better awareness, training and tools to enable police families to thrive with their roles as a support system for their police officer. The law enforcement community is plagued with issues that have a far reaching impact on families including but not limited to mental health issues, high rates of divorce, substance abuse, suicide and more.

Each Beyond The Blue Chapter is tasked with coordinating resources, education, training and fostering a community of support that will give police families the tools they need to thrive, not jut survive. Canada Beyond The Blue currently has chapters in Calgary, York, Toronto, Vancouver & Durham with plans of expanding to other cities.
