In 1995, the SPVM made a commitment to its partners – the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the RCMP – to participate in peacekeeping missions.

Effect on Montrealers
The SPVM's commitment to the international community does not affect the services offered to Montrealers. Administrative agreements with Canadian government agencies ensure that sending officers on these missions does not entail costs for Montréal taxpayers.
Officers who go on missions are replaced by officers who are hired either temporarily or permanently. Montrealers can be assured of receiving quality service from the same size police force.
