VPD and the Vancouver Police Foundation kick off their 2024 charity calendar sale today, with proceeds benefiting the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the BC Cancer Foundation, and the Vancouver Police Foundation.

This year, in addition to the popular canine calendar, VPD and the Vancouver Police Foundation are offering a separate calendar featuring the officers and horses who serve in our historic Mounted Unit.

Proceeds from the Canine Unit calendar are divided equally between BC Children’s Hospital Foundation & the BC Cancer Foundation. Since 2010, the calendar has raised nearly $550,000 dollars for charity.

The Vancouver Police Canine Unit has 16 handler / dog teams, comprised of 14 constables and two sergeants, working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The teams are trained in criminal apprehension, as well as narcotics, firearms, and explosives detection.

Due to the popularity of the annual Canine Unit calendar, the Vancouver Police Foundation is now offering a new calendar featuring members of the VPD Mounted Unit and their horses. The Vancouver Police Mounted Unit, established in 1908, patrols Stanley Park and the City of Vancouver on horseback. In addition to community and ceremonial events, they manage crowds and enhance public safety. The unit is currently home to nine horses. All proceeds from the Mounted Unit calendar will go towards supporting VPD officer-led community safety and engagement programs funded by the Vancouver Police Foundation, helping to make Vancouver safer for all.

The calendars are available for purchase at the following locations:
