• 118th Annual Conference

118th CACP Annual Conference

Welcome

We are pleased to invite you to the 118th Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference in Ottawa, Ontario, August 20 – 22, 2023.

As we assemble what promises to be a valuable professional development program specifically designed with police leaders in mind, we invite you to join us in Canada’s capital, the perfect place to mix business with pleasure. 

Ottawa offers some of the country’s best attractions, celebrations and flavours. Within a short walk from your hotel, you can tour iconic Parliament Hill, visit many of the country’s national museums, and take an epic paddle or cruise on the Rideau Canal—a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Around every corner on both the Ontario and Quebec sides of the Ottawa River, lively neighbourhoods beckon you with tasty craft beer, fresh local food and unique shopping experiences. Pristine outdoor spaces within the city and in the nearby countryside offer a bounty of activities including cycling, rafting, hiking and skiing. And no matter the season, events like Winterlude, the Canadian Tulip Festival and Bluesfest fill the city with excitement and beauty.

The Annual Conference will be hosted by the Ottawa Police Service and will take place at the beautiful Westin Ottawa Hotel and Shaw Convention Centre.
