Abstract
The study examines the changing composition of the Canadian Forces (CF) due to the integration of women into non-traditional roles. In the past, the CF has limited the employment opportunities of women, e.g. restricting women to non-combat roles, requiring women to leave if they became pregnant, etc. However, within the last 20 years, policy changes have had a positive effect on encouraging women to select a career with the CF. This report reviews data on the enrolment of men and women from 1977 to 1990 and provides statistics on the military occupations, experience distributions, and attrition patterns of trained male and female CF personnel.
