About The Canadian Defence Policy Review briefing papers
The public consultations on Canadian defence policy were intended to contribute to the development of a “new” defence policy for Canada, to be released in early 2017. The process engaged Canadians beyond officialdom and the established “defence community,” and the outcome will have important implications for the kinds of key defence decisions that every Canadian Government faces – including major procurement projects and the deployment of forces overseas.
The following briefings are offered as a contribution to the public debate and will focus on defence at home, contributions to international peace and security, and key procurement and program decisions.
