16 This Defence priority was renamed from "Reconstituting and aligning the CAF Post-Afghanistan" because the new name continues to reflect the previously committed respective plans; however, places a wider focus that CAF posture and Defence readiness are a priority for Defence.

19 The CF Force Posture and Readiness 2012 Directive was released in December 2011. This Directive specifically addresses readiness requirements for the CAF in a rolling three year time span and acts as the initial step in the development of a broader CAF Force Posture and Readiness System.

20 A planning timeframe used in capability and force development. There are three timeframes: Horizon 1 is short term (1-5 years), Horizon 2 is medium term (5-10 years) and Horizon 3 is long term (10-30 years).

21 Notes on Human Resources (FTE):

Regular Force:

  • Regular Force personnel strength is measured by total strength and includes Vote 5 funded personnel and approximately 1,100 members on leave without pay (80%) related to parental leave).
    • Vote 5 funds are for Government contingencies, supplementing other appropriations to provide the Government with sufficient flexibility to meet miscellaneous, urgent or unforeseen departmental expenditures between Parliamentary supply periods.
    • While the Regular Force strength target remains 68,000 in accordance with government direction, the Regular Force is currently about 1,000 personnel under strength due to a slight increase in attrition.  Given recruiting and training capacity, it will take some years to recover.  Accordingly, the Annual Reference Level Update will forecast an average of personnel expected to be in the Regular Force across the year and so will differ from the Regular Force targets.

Primary Reserve Class C:

  • Primary Reserve Class C figures are reported separately to maintain the visibility of reservists employed full-time in support of deployed/contingency operations.
  • For reporting purposes, Primary Reserve Class C are considered equivalent to the Regular Force personnel as they are entitled to equivalent pay, benefits and liability as a Regular Force member.
  • Primary Reserve Class C is calculated as person year. For example, two Primary Reservists on Class C service for six months would count as one military FTE.

Civilian:

  • The civilian workforce is planned through a salary wage envelope (SWE). For reporting purposes, the civilian workforce is measured by full-time equivalents (FTE). The FTE total includes all personnel tenure (indeterminate, term, casual and student employees) actively employed and calculated as person year. For example, two part-time employees sharing one position would count as one FTE.
  • Civilian workforce planned FTEs are subject to final budgetary approval.
  • Civilian FTEs do not include personnel on leave without pay.
  • FTE figures in the 2013-14 DPR are not consistent 1:1 with the FTE figures used for the allocation of the financial resources approved for the 2013-14 Annual Reference Level Update.
