Abstract
Recently, the Personnel Operational Research Team (PORT) was asked to carry out an assessment of the implications of the elimination of the Compulsory Retirement Age (CRA). Three different CRA scenarios have been analyzed using the new Long Range Planning Model, an application developed by the PORT using the Generic Model (GeM) environment. Measures that have been studied include annual releases, promotions, and intake as well as the age distribution of the CF. While the elimination of the CRA may have a negative impact on a limited number of occupational groups at certain rank levels, model results indicate that the Canadian Forces (CF) would not be severely affected. Removal of the CRA (without changing pension entitlements) would not significantly alter the age distribution of the CF and the average number of annual releases and promotions for most CF members - under the current Terms of Service. However, annual intake would be expected to decline. If the CRA were to be eliminated at the same time that pension entitlements were delayed, then there would be adverse effects on the age distribution, promotion rates, release rates, and annual intake.
