Peacekeeping has a long tradition in First Nations culture. It is less about law enforcement, more about prevention and intervention at a community level. As a peacekeeper, you’ll engage with your community … because you believe in serving your community.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic delivers the Indigenous Peacekeeping program at the request of First Nations that want to develop skilled peacekeepers within their community. You need to be physically fit, living a healthy lifestyle and committed to making a difference in your community.
Indigenous Peacekeeping is an applied certificate program delivered by Saskatchewan Polytechnic in partnership with First Nations communities. You’ll learn from highly trained instructors who have experience working in the justice system. You’ll learn about:
Peacekeeping happens at a community level, so your training emphasizes hands-on training in the field. You’ll participate in four field experiences. Each will give you a chance to apply your newly learned skills in different community-based settings.
When you graduate, you’ll be ready to take on the role of a peacekeeper. The program trains you specifically for employment in your own community, where you’ll work in community-based law enforcement and justice. Ask your local band office about job opportunities.

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
