Jay C. Hope became the highest-ranking black police officer in Canadian history, when he was promoted to Deputy Chief of Ontario Provincial Police in 2004 and only the second black Deputy Minister of Correctional Services when appointed by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty in 2008.
Hope has also been Commissioner of Emergency Management Ontario, Commissioner of Community Safety and an Ontario Human Rights Commission senior investigator. Currently on long-term secondment, he remains a serving police officer of more than 30 years.
Deputy Minister Hope is a University of Toronto, Scarborough Campus, graduate with a bachelor of arts in psychology and criminology. In 2009, he received an honourary doctorate of law from the University of Guelph and an honourary bachelor of arts from Seneca College.
Hope’s fondest memories are of Scarborough – attending Glen Ravine Public School and Midland High School and working at Scarborough Town Centre.
In 2001, he was awarded the African-Canadian Achievement Award and the Amethyst Award, the highest honour given to civil servants.
Hope’s most proud of the traffic programs he’s implemented that have significantly reduced death and injury to drivers and passengers.
