Dress and deportment are two cornerstones of the Profession of Arms. To ensure that a high standard of uniform appearance is understood and maintained by all military personnel in National Defence Headquarters, a new dress policy came into effect 1 July 2011. Operational dress (defined as CADPAT, Naval Combat Dress or Flight Suits) is still permitted for valid training purposes.
Table 2: Applies to CA HQ, CANSOFCOM and CJOC * Civilian Dress may be authorized by individual commands; ** Sergeants and below may wear higher orders of dress (ie. DEUs) with supervisor’s approval. It should be noted that the above should be seen as an interim policy and will be amended with the eventual centralization of military personnel.
Table 1: Applies to all military personnel employed in the National Capital Region (with the exception of those identified in Table 2).
