The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and Royal Military College of Canada

When the Learned Societies held their annual session in 1950 at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, the decision was taken to establish a national organization of university teachers which could deal with issues such as salaries, tenure, pensions, income tax relief, sabbaticals and academic freedom. The primary concerns were poor

salaries and a sense of the declining status of academics. At that time, a provisional organizing committee was formed with eighteen members from sixteen universities.

The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) now represents over 66,000 academic staff at 122 universities and colleges and has a budget of $7.1-million.

The Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association (CMCFA), which is a Canadian Association of University Teachers Member Association, represents academic faculty at the Royal Military College of Canada, Royal Military College St. Jean, and the Canadian Forces College.

CMCFA`s role is to regulate the relations between members of the CMCFA and their employer, including collective bargaining, administration of the collective agreement, and any other means of effectively representing employee interests. Specifically, CMCFA promotes the well-being of its members; promotes and defends academic freedom; and promotes the well-being of the Canadian Military Colleges.
