Canada plans to be able to fulfill its commitment to send 20 police officers to support the peacekeeping mission in Mali before the end of the year, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Currently, 10 Canadian police officers are deployed in Mali as part of a UN mission to restore stability in this country of West Africa torn by an ethnic and jihadist insurgency.

Various countries are participating in this mission and mobilize a total of 1,700 police officers in Mali. The RCMP promised last summer to provide a contingent of 20 officers in 2019.

“By the end of this year, our goal is to have a total of 20 police officers in Mali” said RCMP superintendent Kelly Bradshaw, who is responsible for all Canadian police officers serving there.

Canada has been celebrating National Peacekeepers Day since 2008. This day was created to commemorate the tragic events of August 9, 1974, when nine Canadian peacekeepers were serving in Egypt and Israel as part of a United Nations mission.

The policing mission in Mali comes as Ottawa plans to increase the levels of police deployment in UN missions and other international organizations.

Downward figures in the matter were reported to Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland in a report released last month under the Access to Information Act.

From 2006 to 2017, Canadian police were largest contribution to peacekeeping missions and Canada was the largest contributor to the West for individual police officers, underlines the report.

This figure dropped in 2017 when only 19 officers were deployed to UN missions. As of July 24, 77 Canadian police have been deployed around the world on peacekeeping missions, including Ukraine, Iraq and Haiti.
