Abstract
In the past, the Canadian Forces (CF) has limited the employment opportunities of women, e.g. by restricting the occupations in which women were allowed to enrol, requiring women to resign 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 women from 1977 to 1990 and provides a profile of the variation in marital status associated with years of service. This profile is of interest in that decisions associated with attrition rates, postings and career development policies must recognize the needs of dual income families, particularly if both members are enroled in the CF.
