The North-West Mounted Police: Policing the West

Soldiers and their stories come alive as the students discover how the North-West Mounted Police became such an important element of Canadian history.

This educator's package presents insightful information about Canada's first national police force: The North West Mounted Police. The information encourages students to examine artifacts from the Glenbow Museum's collection and connect them to the true stories, adventures and heroic feats the NWMP experienced throughout Canada.
