A. No. There is no minimum height, because that would be discriminatory under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Those old hiring standards have been replaced by a physical aptitude test.
A. No, it's false. As long as you meet the vision standard with and without correction, as stipulated in the Police Act, wearing glasses or contact lenses isn't a problem.
A. Yes. In work situations, police officers have to be in shape in order to protect the security of the public, their colleagues, and themselves. The physical aptitude test includes cardio-vascular and muscular segments. If you want to be a cop, you better start training now!
