Real Change: A New Plan For a Strong Middle Class (page 69)


JUSTIFICATION

September 2019 - With the new national defence policy and funding, the government has reinvested in the military including support systems for military personnel and their families; however, the implementation phase of the new policy is still underway so it is difficult to assess the extent to which the military is now leaner, more agile and better-equipped in 2019 until more data is available that would facilitate comparisons of the military's profile in 2015 to that of 2019. The evaluation of the Canadian Armed Forces completed in 2017 suggested that this was the case; however, blacked -out text suggests their are some challenges remaining seemingly at the level of the Canadian Joint Operations Command Headquarters.

November 2017 - "CAF Ops program expenditures have declined over the period of this evaluation since the close-out of combat and training missions in Afghanistan, with the exception of FY 2015/16. Recent increases in spending have been directed towards international operations such as Op IMPACT (in Iraq and Syria), and Op REASSURANCE (in Central and Eastern Europe). In recent evaluation years, the CAF Ops program has operated as a lean organization with reduced CJOC HQ personnel and financial resources driving governance of CAF operations to become more efficient despite a consistently high operational tempo. The CAF continues to demonstrate efficient and economic use of resources in operations. Notable examples include the use of Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels in support of Op CARRIBE (in the Caribbean) and the use of operational support hubs (OSH) in overseas locations." - Evaluation of Canadian Armed Forces Operations - National Defence Canada
