Frequently Asked Questions

Do CBSA applicants have the same PARE as RCMP candidates?

Yes, the PARE is the physical standard for several federal and provincial agencies.  Police Fit Canada is pleased to be the trusted testing agency for the RCMP, CBSA, Parks Canada, Air Marshall Services, Alberta Sheriffs, CP Police and the Parliament Protective Services.  We are also the trusted testing agency for the Ontario Correctional Services (FITCO), Edmonton Police Service (A-PREP).  We work closely with all agencies to facilitate physical testing requirements on a national scale.

As of May 1st, 2016 the PARE fitness standard has solely been shifted to the Depot Training Academy for RCMP recruits.  Therefore, candidates are not required to pass the PARE prior to attending the Depot Training Academy.
