How to join Special Operations Forces

If you are interested in working in a unique environment, CANSOFCOM can provide that challenge to you whether it is in a support role or in one of the operator focused roles.

 

Civilians

Civilians cannot join CANSOFCOM directly. Canadian Armed Forces personnel joining CANSOFCOM must have completed their operationally functional point (OFP) in their current occupation and demonstrate that they have the special attributes and training desired to fill these demanding roles. If you think that service in CANSOFCOM is your preferred career path, you are encouraged to contact your local Canadian Armed Forces Recruiting Centre for more information on careers in the military.

 

Canadian Armed Forces members

CANSOFCOM units recruit directly from the Canadian Armed Forces (Regular and Reserve Forces) for a variety of employment. The CANSOFCOM method of selection is dependant on the unit and the position sought. 

 

Steps to join CANSOFCOM

All Regular and Reserve Force members wishing to apply for a position within CANSOFCOM, please Locate a Recruiter for more information.
