RCMP Academy looking for contract scenario actors

The RCMP Academy, Depot Division, in Regina, Saskatchewan, is looking for scenario actors to help train cadets. Actors will be paid $15/hour.

Actors are needed four times during each troop's time at Depot for Anger Management, Domestic Disturbance and Mental Health training scenarios as well as a final practical exam.

For the training scenarios, actors are given general scenarios that will require them to improvise. They need to respond to the cadets accordingly; for example, if the cadet shows good police presence in order to deescalate the situation, actors will react appropriately. Finals also require improvisation, but the actors are given more direction to ensure consistency that allow the cadets to follow the proper procedures.

Training scenarios are completed indoors, however finals can be anywhere on base in any weather. During finals, the scenarios could possibly lead to a physical response by the cadet. An actor has to be able to get on the ground and stand up, be handcuffed while lying down, kneel and have their hands behind their back for periods of time.

We expect other acting opportunities to occur in the future and those will be discussed as they occur.


  • Actors must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Actors must be physically capable of laying on the ground, being handcuffed and returning to their feet.
  • Actors are needed on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • All training occurs at the RCMP Academy in Regina.
  • Acting experience is preferred, but is not necessary.
  • Actors need to speak and read in either English or French.
  • All contract actors will be required to complete a RCMP security clearance at the cost of the RCMP.
