Business of defence

While understated in the SSE, modernizing Canada's approach to defence hinges on transforming and modernizing the Business of Defence.

Business of Defence

By now, we've all had time to read (or at least review) the Government of Canada's 111 new initiatives to enable a bold new vision and approach to defend Canada and contribute to a peaceful world. And if there is one takeaway from summer 2017's policy, Strong Secure Engaged (SSE), it is that Ottawa acknowledges the need to equip the women and men of our Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with the modern capabilities, resources, and systems they need to succeed on operations and be supported in theatres across the globe and at home.

Among the policy's rallying cries for stronger investments and a "transformative innovation agenda", is an equally important – albeit quieter – call for the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) to "work tirelessly to modernize the business of defence" by maximizing operational output and "[ensuring] every defence dollar is put to the best use in achieving our objectives."
