This is a list of people killed by non-military law enforcement officers in Canada, both on duty and off, and regardless of reason or method. Inclusion in the lists implies neither wrongdoing nor justification on the part of the person killed or the officer involved; the listing merely documents the occurrence of a death.

This list is incomplete. There are no concrete statistics on fatal shootings by law enforcement officers in Canada, though the range has been estimated to be between 15 and 25 per year.[1][2] Statistics Canada only tracks fatal police shootings if an officer is criminally charged.[3]
