The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP; French: Gendarmerie royale du Canada{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (GRC), literally 'Royal Gendarmerie of Canada'; colloquially known as the Mounties, and internally as 'the Force') is both a federal and a national police force of Canada. The RCMP provides law enforcement at a federal level in Canada, and also on a contract basis to the three territories, eight of Canada's provinces (the RCMP does not provide provincial or municipal policing in either Ontario or Quebec), more than 190 municipalities, 184 aboriginal communities, and three international airports.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
