Abstract
The Your-Say Survey is administered regularly by the Director of Personnel Applied Research in order to obtain information about Canadian Forces (CF) members’ attitudes concerning a wide spectrum of human resource issues. The focus section of the Spring 2005 administration of the Your-Say Survey concentrated on issues relating to diversity and employment equity in the CF, with a key component of this section focused on persons with disabilities (PWDs) in the CF. Analyses were conducted (1) to assess PWDs’ experiences in the CF, including accommodation, discrimination, and perceptions of fair treatment; (2) to assess CF members’ attitudes and perceptions about PWDs in the CF and CF policies towards PWDs; and (3) quantitatively cross-validate some of the qualitative observations reported in the CF Employment Systems Review. Overall, although the results of this study indicate many positive aspects regarding the policies concerning PWDs in the CF and the perceptions and treatment of PWDs in the CF, a number of concerns were also noted.
