Ottawa – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Today, National Defence launched an online progress tracker that will be used to update members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), employees of the Department of National Defence (DND), and Canadians about our work and our progress in addressing culture and conduct.

Every member of the CAF and DND team deserves to work in an environment of mutual respect, dignity and inclusion, where they have the opportunity to contribute and thrive.

Achieving long-term, sustainable change will take time. Progress is being made on key supporting efforts to achieve this lasting culture change, and DND/CAF are committed to measuring and evaluating progress over the long term. Key to these efforts is accountability and remaining transparent about our progress — both with members of the Defence Team and the Canadian public.

The progress tracker, which will be updated at regular intervals, outlines the work the DND/CAF is undertaking between now and March 31, 2022, and will be expanded over time as additional activities are undertaken and progress made.
