Spouses and children of law enforcement face a unique set of circumstances that lends itself to the need for emotional support, better awareness, training and tools to enable police families to thrive with their roles as a support system for their police officer. 


The law enforcement community is plagued with mental health issues, addictions, cumulative stress, critical incident stress, PTSD/PTSI, marital discord and high rates of divorce; and these have a deep and far reaching impact on families. Accordingly, there is a need for an organization that specifically supports spouses and family members of police officers and Canada Beyond the Blue intends to answer the call.

While we strive to align and be endorsed by our police services and associations/unions, it is important that we remain a separate and independent entity. BTB's mandate focuses on offering training, education and a community of support without burdening the employer or association.


The key elements of our organization lie within the following objectives:

  • To offer a community of support to spouses of police officers & police families

  • To promote awareness of our officer’s worth as well as an understanding of the joys and struggles that are uniquely experienced in a life in law enforcement

  • To coordinate presentations, speakers & resources that will aid in offering training & practical tools to police spouses and families
