About Us

Who We Are & What We Do

The Police Retirees of Ontario Incorporated (P.R.O.), was founded in 1992, by a group of retired police officers for the purpose of establishing an organization which would be dedicated to serving an exclusive membership restricted to retired law enforcement personnel of every rank and classification, their spouses, the widow and widowers of both active and retired law enforcement personnel.
To enable the P.R.O. to fulfill its obligations to its membership, and ensure compliance with its aims and objectives, the Corporation hosts sponsored fundraising events in many communities throughout Ontario each year.
Since 1992, the Police Retirees of Ontario has been able to donate in excess of $1,000,000 to children-oriented causes and charities throughout Ontario.

The Teddy Bear Program

The Teddy Bear Campaign is under way, thank you to all the supporters across Ontario for your donations to make this campaign possible.  Bears are distributed to emergency services units across Ontario. When a child is exposed to traumatic situations the emergency service units have bears on hand to give to the little one to hold and help calm.

If you would like bears sent to your youth organization, or would like to donate to support the bear program please contact us.
