The PAO strongly encourages all police personnel members and the public to keep up-to-date on the status of COVID-19 in Ontario and Canada. Visit covid-19.ontario.ca for updates on current emergency orders, vaccination availability, and access to a self-assessment tool.
The PAO is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of eight members elected by local association delegates at our Annual General Meeting. The demands on Board Directors are significant, with the President holding a full-time position and the Board Directors undertaking PAO work on top of their local association and service obligations where applicable.
The Board is supported by five full-time staff with an office in Toronto.
