Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members are amongst the best trained military personnel in the world. This strategic advantage has consistently enabled the CAF to excel during all types of operations. The challenge is to maintain this advantage in the face of resource constraints and an increasingly complex and challenging security environment.

CAF Campus represents a fundamental shift from the traditional IT&E paradigm and is the first systemic rationalization of the IT&E system in the CAF’s history. Displacing the stovepiped approach of the current system, it empowers leadership at all levels and enables the strategic synchronization of plans, opportunities and investments to improve IT&E while reducing the burden on personnel and resources.

CAF Campus will initiate a culture of continuous improvement and deliberate, coordinated analysis to ensure the sustained effectiveness and efficiency of the IT&E system. Innovative approaches that fuse modern methodologies with the latest technology-enabled IT&E solutions will accelerate learning, improve retention, encourage critical thinking and enable easy access to realistic IT&E at the point of need. The improved efficiencies made possible by the implementation of CAF Campus will produce effects well beyond the IT&E system, including improvements to capability development and reduction of the overall operations and maintenance burden. CAF Campus will facilitate the goals of our members who embrace self-improvement and who have been limited by the current IT&E system. It also capitalizes on integration with collective training, joint training and all four pillars of the CAF Professional Development System, while making the best use of every training dollar.
