According to research Canadian Forces can be defined as armed forces set up by Canada and is made of; the Air Force, Land force and Canadian Navy.

Canadian Air Force has 13 bases around Canada, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Labrador and Newfoundland being the major air bases. The command control and administrative facilities are in North Bay and Winnipeg respectively. NATO Air Based is based in Geilenkirchen.

Canadian Land Force can also be referred as the Canadian Army whereas Canadian Navy is referred as Maritime Command and a descendant of Royal Navy. The Maritime Command has 33 submarines and warships at the Esquimalt Royal Navy Dockyard on the west coast of the Pacific and at Canadian Dockyard on the east coast of the Atlantic.

Canadian Command was created in 2006 to improve time response to natural calamities and domestic terrorism commanded by commission officer.

According to Jayson Myers President of Canadian Manufacturers and Exports, economical challenges and unprecedented market volatility are a fact that Canada is living in global economic crisis.

What should the future of Canadian defence force be?

In the near future the Canadian government will have to find away to maintain the troops in Afghanistan,, if they withdraw the war, the troops expenditure will be the best plan to save the government from deficits.

The budget will be cut if they don't undertake their missions; thus growing their economy. Most recent UN missions have successfully proven at imposing peace; missions were conducted by armed military. (National Post Magazine)

Canadian Defence Force requires the reshaping and reorganisation of its armed forces. In the past the government argued that the traditional arranging of the Royal Navy, Canadian Army and the Air Force service chief and commander might not meet the challenges presented to them in the future. After World War I Canada began to integrate defence activities which didn't last long, it was ended before World War II, but when the war was over the British Commonwealth existed through the traditional organisation.

Canadian politicians are not and never have been interested in defence; Canadian public cannot escape a share of the blame. Too many of our people think that all we enjoy was always there, was not fought for, will just continue, without our personal attention. We are no longer making any efforts in international affairs. While some reasonable degree of freedom still remains for us under our form of government, we must face the fact that this freedom will soon disappear unless we exercise our rights wisely. Canada must take major pains to ensure that we are well enough informed on the choice of wise leaders - perhaps, great leaders. I quote; Rear Admiral Jeffrey Brock, DSO, DSC, CD, RCN, was serving as Vice Chief of Naval Staff in Ottawa in the early 1960s.

Canadian government needs a traditional peacekeeping even after the project withdrawal in Kandahar, either under the United Nations regional mandate or NATO. The government should ensure that the choices she is making are a better benefit to the Canadians civilians and military thus they need to be very excellent in peacekeeping.

The Chief of Defence Staff spoke on the Canadian battle of floods, fires and ice storms all over the country and the political unrest across the world. The extensive reforms and the strong struggle reduction on the budget and became transparent on the public they serve.

Other types of international securities are likely to come up in the future to fight non-traditional scares like cyberwar and terrorism. Human rights issues such as food access, clean water access, energy, ecological degradation and infectious diseases.

Security along the borders is no longer an exclusively measured in geographic border, thus maintaining and securing a border requires impact on economic figures, so as pandemics such as swine flu, HIV/AIDS, climate change and conflicts between the states cannot be easily prevented. Defence policy has to determine a way to avoid its permeability to money crisis, migration, technology and diseases.

Canada has improved on how to respond in conflicts created by different ethnics and religion. Also non-Canadians who have access to dangerous weapons used in guerrilla warfare needs a force that can analyze and decide between the terrorism.

Various states that are willing to contribute their troops and police will have to accept and agree to the challenges that awaits them in peacekeeping, thus moving from the traditional peacekeeping which is maintained by CF personals. The dialogue between the state members helps in casualties and costs.

CF experience in Afghanistan has a big value in refining use of advanced technology in conflict situations. Police and troops who have no experience thus training and supporting them can aid in the UN mission.

An identified and a functional command and communication system is crucial in peacekeeping. A major disagreement has been on civil military coordination and civil military cooperation at the tactical and operational levels.

What are the major threats to Canadian security today?

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service is an internal security of the Canadian Government which is responsible for analyzing reporting and collecting information needed on threats to Canada National Security.

The Canadian security Intelligence Service was established following the McDonald Commission if Inquiry in 1984. The service is responsible for early warnings to the government and agencies on the suspected activities that threatens the country's security.

Due to the rise of terrorism and the demise of the Cold War, Canada Security Intelligence Service has put across a public safety priority. This can be seen in the high proportion of resources devoted to counter-terrorism.

Some of the activities that threat Canada


These are activities conducted in order to endanger the safety, security, public or private property, and create fright to the Canadian people.


These are conducted for the purpose of wanting to acquire unlawful means of data or sensitive political assets, economical asset, military weapons and also unauthorized foreign communication to other organization.


This is the threat or use of violence to try and compel the Canadian's government to act or comply with their demands. Some of these activities may lead to death to people, destruction of public and private properties. Assassinations, bomb threats, hostage taking are just examples of some of those activities that endanger the daily live of Canadians.

The actions may be to force a given political response.


These are intended to other throw the government by force and use of violence. Subversion seeks to destroy the electoral, legislative, administrative and judicial processes of the country.

According to the CBC news the National Security Policy was talked in parliament 2004, they outlined a broad scope security, and public safety to protect the people of Canada. The government set aside about $690 million for the action plan and framework. (CBC News Online | April 27, 2004)

The Deputy Prime Minister and Public Safety; Minister Anne McLellan; said the plan titled Securing an Open Society: the policy is based on three national security interests:

Firstly; protecting Canada and her people home and abroad.

Secondly; contributing to international security.

Thirdly; ensuring Canada is not a base for threats.

In the speech made to W.P.D. Elcock Director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service to the Vancouver Board of Trade, it was said that the Al-Qaeda still remains the most dangerous organization of international scope. It still continues to receive its support from the terrorist groups like Sunni or individuals across the world.

What Does the Security and Intelligence Do?

The work of the service is; providing the government with advice on specific threats to the country.

According to Asian Pacific Mission for Migrants women are the most exploited people in the world. Those who are oppressed mostly are migrant's workers and immigrants whom are non-documented. These conditions have increased due to the failure of non-neo-liberal globalisation and that has lead to many discriminatory policies posed by the government.

The policy is a national verification scheme of Thailand which is to set stages for massive crackdowns on foreign workers and migrants.

Funnily some countries in the region where vicious attacks have occurred also are willing to soon come up with the rights of women and young children.
