Canada announces members, mandate of board to lead review of Canada’s military colleges


Government of Canada Minister of National Defence Bill Blair has announced the members and mandate of a board that will lead a review of Canada’s military colleges amid the ongoing sexual misconduct crisis. The Canadian Military Colleges Review Board is comprised of five external education and culture experts and two Department of National Defence/Canadian Armed Forces members, who will have a year to make recommendations pertaining to part of former Supreme Court of Canada Justice Louise Arbour’s Independent External Comprehensive Review Report. The board will review the advantages and disadvantages of how Royal Military College Kingston and Royal Military College Saint-Jean operate and will assess the different potential options for educating naval and officer cadets. “The education experience that naval officer cadets receive must reflect the values of the Canadian Armed Forces and the 21st-century Canada in which we live,” said Blair.
