Today, the Minister of National Defence, the Honorable Bill Blair, launched the Canadian Military College Review Commission (CMCRR) online consultation portal to gather feedback from Canadians on the two colleges military personnel of Canada, within the framework of the mandate of the CECMC. The Consulting with Canadians platform will be available until September 15, 2024 to collect feedback on the mandate of the CECMC.

The CECMC’s mandate is to:

The CECMC will analyze the benefits, costs and advantages, both for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and for Canada, of continuing the training of naval cadets and officer cadets in the Officer Training Program – Force regular (PFOR) in the two military colleges of Canada; Assess the comparative quality of education, socialization (including the inculcation of Canadian values and expectations) and military leadership training in the CMC environment; Assess the potential of different models of university education and military leadership training for officer cadets and naval cadets; Evaluate whether the Cadet Wing command structure of authority and responsibility should be maintained, modified or abandoned as a leadership development practice; and Recommend whether CMCs should retain their current mandate or be modified as undergraduate degree-granting institutions.

In particular, the CECMC, which began its work in January 2024, will make recommendations regarding recommendation 28 and recommendation 29 of the report of former Supreme Court Justice Louise Arbor who authored theIndependent and Comprehensive External Review (ICER). The CECMC has approximately one year to formulate its recommendations. Led by President Dr. Kathy Hogarth, it is made up of five external experts in education and culture and two internal members from the Department of National Defense (DND) and the CAF.
