Abstract
The report examines the social and work environment of the Militia. The analyses are based on a survey of 7,889 Militia members conducted in 1990. Results are compared to similar data collected in 1986. General assessments of the unit environment, as measured by the Moos Inventory Scale, are moderately above average. The most favourable assessments are from members over the age of 44. Satisfaction with opportunities for advancement and the quality of leadership is evident, although supervisor stability remains a goal. Many members are not satisified with Militia pay and benefits. Militia members are also dissatisfied with the respect they receive from the Regular Force and the Canadian public. Most members feel that their employer, and spouse or partner, are supportive of, or do not mind, their Militia involvement. For the large majority of members, the Militia has met or exceeded the expectations they had prior to joining.
