As with other federal government establishments, the Canadian Forces College is a bilingual working environment, and offers a series of professional military education (PME) programmes at the graduate level primarily for merit-selected officers in the Canadian Armed Forces (and selected international officers and senior executives working in the security sector in relevant government departments). Members of the department, the largest and most interdisciplinary group of security- and defence-related academics in Canada, are a dynamic and highly professional team with a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds and expertise.
