Abstract
The research note provides a brief synopsis of the trends in Regular Force enrolment since 1989, when a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered the Canadian Forces (CF) to remove all restrictions on the employment of women. Downsizing efforts since the early 1990's have had a significant impact on the enrolment patterns for women as well as men, both on the numbers enrolled and the type of occupations open for recruitment. Since the only way to increase the total number of women in the Regular Force is through recruitment, trends in enrolment should be monitored closely. This work will be used as part of a more comprehensive gender analysis of the CF recruitment system.
