The Military Police Complaints Commission of Canada is a Canadian federal government independent, quasi-judicial body, established by the Parliament of Canada in December 1999. The MPCC was created to render the handling of complaints concerning the Canadian Forces Military Police more transparent and accessible, and to ensure that both complainants and members of the Military Police are dealt with fairly and impartially through investigations, consultations and public interest investigations and public interest hearings.

The Commission does not have the power to discipline. It sets out its findings and recommendations regarding the complaints it has reviewed or investigated in reports sent to the Minister of National Defence (MND), the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) and the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal (CFPM).
