Abstract
This paper describes a methodology which can be applied to developing estimates for increased recruitment requirements within designated demographic groups so as to achieve policy goals for representation of these designated groups within the Canadian Forces (CF). The main factors taken into account are the end state goal for the designated group, the time interval specified for achieving this goal, current and future CF population sizes, and attrition rates for both the designated group and the entire CF. To illustrate the methodology, it is applied to the example case of representation levels of aboriginal peoples in both the officer and NCM Regular Force populations. A sensitivity analylsis is provided by examining the implications of varying the baseline assumptions in four scenarios.
