About Jim Clifford
Jim has 31 years service as an RCMP Member and is originally from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. He has spent his career in Atlantic Canada in a variety of operational and more recently, administrative roles. In 2008, Jim first became involved in labour issues and worked for RCMP Management in the Atlantic Region for the next several years. Jim would later convert the training and experience to go to work for Members as a Staff Relations Representative until that program wound down in 2016. He then became the Atlantic Region Member Workplace Services Supervisor, an interim program to assist with individual Members’ rights issues. His last role in the RCMP was as Acting O. i/c Member Workplace Services before joining the National Police Federation as part of its Inaugural Board of Directors. To the extent he can, Jim would like to see all Districts/Detachments and Units adequately resourced in terms of personnel and physical assets and sees an abundance of room for improvement in that regard in Atlantic Canada.
