Abstract
A 1989 Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered the Canadian Forces to open all areas of employment, with the exception of submarine service, to women within ten years. Although restrictions on the employment of women in the Canadian Forces were removed almost immediately after the 1989 Canadian Human Rights Tribunal decision, the downsizing efforts of the Regular Forces have limited significant progress in female representation rates. To properly understand how female participation in the Canadian Forces has changed since 1989, other facts such as enrolment, training, occupational distributions, career progression, attrition, attitudes towards gender integration, and harassment must be examined. The aim of this report is to provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of these factors affecting gender integration in the Canadian Forces.
