Abstract
This paper documents the analysis carried out to provide Canadian input to The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) with respect to determining first term attrition rates for Non Commissioned Members (NCMs) in the Canadian Forces (CF). First term attrition is taken to mean release from the CF during the first three years of service (YOS). Data from the past decade indicate that approximately 30% of NCMs leave the CF before completing 3 YOS - a result comparable to the US experience. Also, it appears that female NCM attrition rates are higher than corresponding male NCM attrition rates in the first three YOS.
