Abstract
This Contract Report documents the development of a database of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) operations, covering the period of 1 January 1990 to 31 December 2015 based on the FIVE-W Database and its 2011 Supplemental Update. The new FIVE-W Database 2015 (5W DB 2015) regenerates the original data in a relational database using Microsoft Access as its Database Management System (DBMS) software replacing the static Microsoft Word tables of the original. The 2015 version completes the data collected in the Supplemental Update and adds the latest domestic, continental and expeditionary operations. The FIVE–W Database 2015 is presented as a complete set of unclassified CAF operations conducted between 1990 and 2015. Additionally, the names of operations conducted since 1945 and the names of other major activities labelled as “operations” are also captured as a means of creating a master list of operation nicknames.
