Abstract
The research note provides a brief synopsis of the trends in Regular Force attrition since 1989, when a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered the Canadian Forces (CF) to remove all restrictions on the employment of women. The national economic conditions plus the downsizing efforts of the CF have influenced attrition patterns of both female and male members over the period. However, female attrition rates have been generally higher than those observed for men. This should be of some concern as the CF is trying to increase female representation, particularly in the non-traditional occupations.
