Abstract
This report presents the results of a public opinion survey conducted to determine the interest and propensity of designated group members (DGMs), including women, visible minorities, and Aboriginal people, to join the Canadian Forces. With the previous administration of the interest and propensity survey having been conducted in 2000, there was a need to conduct another survey, to ensure that estimates are based on current and accurate figures. The aim of this research was to assess the familiarity of DGMs with the CF; to assess the level of interest and propensity of DGMs to join the CF overall, as well as to join specific elements within the CF (e.g. Regular versus Primary Reserve Force); and to provide a comparative analysis of the 2000 and 2006 results. The results of the survey are based on telephone interviews conducted with a representative sample of 1,985 Canadians.
