Canadian Forces Education as a Contributor to National Development.
McRoberts, B. G.
The education and training provided by the Canadian Armed Forces is analyzed in consideration of its contribution to both the economic and social aspects of national development. From this analysis it appears that the Armed Forces' extensive formally organized education and training program has an important impact on economic development when qualified military personnel are released into the civilian labor market at an early retirement age. In addition, the informal exchange of knowledge between military personnel and other Canadians, as well as programs such as those for the reserves, summer students, cadets, and professorships of military and strategic studies expand education in areas that contribute to social development.
