Today, the Honorable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Public Safety, Democratic Institutions and Intergovernmental Affairs, announced the reappointment of Charles Randall Smith as Chair of the External Review Committee of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (GRC). His mandate was renewed for a period of five years starting June 18, 2024.

Mr. Smith brings extensive legal experience to this position, including 30 years as a military lawyer in the Office of the Judge Advocate General of the Canadian Forces. With the renewal of his mandate, Mr. Smith will continue the accomplishments he has made over the past five years to strengthen organizational accountability within the RCMP and promote a healthy, respectful and inclusive work environment for members of the RCMP.

As an independent review body separate from the RCMP, the External Review Committee impartially reviews appeals of certain labor relations processes and files and presents its findings and recommendations to the Commissioner of the RCMP .
