CANADIAN DEFENCE POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT – ENCOURAGING!

M050 Tony Battista

“Canada’s Defence Policy entitled: ‘Strong’ (at home), ‘Secure’ (in North America), and ‘Engaged’ (in the world), is an appropriate response to today’s global security environment which inevitably affects Canada, Canadian interests and way of life”, says CDA and CDA Institute CEO, Tony Battista. “While this new Defence Policy document is the end of a lengthy process which included extensive consultations – both outside and inside government and with Allies – it is also the beginning of a very challenging implementation requiring huge efforts on the part of the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces, but equally important with the utmost support from many other Government departments and agencies.”

“The CDA will be working in close collaboration with its 40+ member associations and other like-minded organizations to monitor, assist and comment to ensure that the implementation of this policy reflects its promises,” adds Battista.
