About Men & Women of the Canadian Armed Forces Biography




The Canadian Forces (French: Forces canadiennes), abbreviated as CF (French: FC), are the combined armed forces of Canada.
The operational elements of the Canadian Forces are: Maritime Command (MARCOM), or the navy; Land Force Command (LFC) or the army; Air Command (AIRCOM), or the air force; Canada Command (CANCOM), responsible for all operations within Canada; Canadian Expeditionary Force Command (CEFCOM), responsible for operations outside of Canada; and Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM), responsible for special forces.
The Canadian Forces are governed by the National Defence Act, which states:
The Canadian Forces are the armed forces of Her Majesty raised by Canada and consist of one Service called the Canadian Armed Forces.National Defence Act, R.S., 1985, c.N-4, s-14) (
The Canadian Forces was formed on February 1, 1968, when the Canadian government merged the Canadian Army, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force into a unified structure. Canada remains one of the few developed countries in the world using this model for organizing its military forces.
Air Defence Command, air Transport Command, Mobile Command (later renamed Force Mobile Command and currently Land force Command), Materiel Command, Training Command and Maritime Command were all formed on February 1, 1968. Communication Command was formed on September 1, 1970. On September 2, 1975, Air Defence Command, Air Transport Command and Training Command were disbanded and realigned when Air Command was formed. Materiel Command was disbanded during the 1980s and Communication Command was disbanded in the mid-1990s at the same time as Force Mobile Command was renamed. Canada Command was formed on January 31, 2006. Canadian Expeditionary Force Command and Canadian Special Operations Forces Command were both formed on February 1, 2006.
By the Canadian Constitution, the Command-in-Chief of the Canadian Forces is vested in Queen Elizabeth II, as Queen of Canada.[6] However, since 1904 the Monarch has allowed the Canadian viceroy to exercise the duties ascribed to that post, and since 1905 to hold the title Commander-in-Chief.[7] The current Governor General and Commander-in-Chief is Micha�lle Jean. Under the Westminster system's parliamentary custom and practice, however, the Prime Minister of Canada holds de facto decision-making power over the deployment and disposition of Canadian forces. The military head of the Canadian Forces is the Chief of Defence Staff. The Cabinet officer in charge of the Canadian Forces is the Minister of National Defence (MND), who answers to the Prime Minister. Declarations of War must be signed by the Canadian Monarch or Governor General.
The Canadian Forces are commanded by National Defence Headquarters located in Ottawa, Ontario. Canadian Forces personnel train to defend Canadian sovereignty, and serve operationally in Canada, in support of NATO tasks, and around the world in international and United Nations peace missions.
