Canadian Forces Ethics Training
The Canadian Defence Academy (CDA) has the mandate to develop common education and training programmes for Canadian Forces personnel. CDA has chosen to include ethics training within the CF Leadership Development continuum rather than creating a stand alone course . It has taken a four-phased approach to create ethics training for both Non-Commissioned Members and Officers that will be integrated into each CF Development Period, training geared to the needs of personnel as they progress through the ranks. In the first phase, a draft framework was produced. CDA is currently in the second phase. It involves receiving input and guidance from The Defence Ethics Programme (DEP) as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and integrating their recommendations into the framework. The third phase will address the question of how to teach and implement the material and the final 4th phase will inolve delivery of the training at CF schools.
DEP will endeavour to keep users of our Web site updated on the progress of this initiative.
