Abstract
The Vice Chief of Defence Staff (VCDS) was tasked to coordinate the development of a minimum scenario set for department force planning. To meet this requirement the Director of Defence Analysis (DDA) sponosred a departmental workshop to develop the scenario set and to produce a brief write-up (a "snapshot") of each scenario selected. The foundation document for the exercise was the 1994 Defence White Paper, whilst the Defence Planning Guidance 1997 was used as an amplifying document. The scenarios selected were to be a minimum set, be credible and realistic, build upon work previously carried out and apply to the Canadian Forces as a whole, not be single service specific. This report documents the proceedings of the workshop and the results that were produced.
