The association’s national policy regarding orders of dress is intended to provide clarity while encouraging both uniformity and inclusiveness. It further provides division-level discretion in specifying orders of dress commensurate with local circumstances.


Standard Operating Procedures Ottawa Division:

1. Ceremonial Kit Replacement 2. Disposal of RCMP Uniform & Kit

The division executive or designate (protocol officer or sergeant at arms) may exercise discretion in specifying the appropriate order of dress. For example, parade dress may be worn without headdress for routine meetings and gatherings; parade dress may be worn for funerals and services instead of ceremonial dress; and ceremonial dress may be worn without headdress at indoor funerals and services.

Orders of dress fall under three categories: duty and parade, ceremonial, and formal.
