Strengthening and Expanding our Canadian Armed Forces Reserves

We've announced several measures to expand and strengthen the Canadian Armed Forces reserve in order to better protect Canada's sovereignty and to deepen the connection between the Canadian Armed Forces and Canadian communities. 

Our plan is about building greater strategic depth for our armed forces to ensure that they are prepared to respond to varied, and multiple, domestic or international emergencies. A strengthened reserve force will assist in enhancing the capacity of the Canadian Armed Forces to respond to challenges as they arise. 

Under a re-elected Conservative Government, Canada will continue to take a resolute stand against the threats and security challenges which confront our country, acting in conjunction with our closest allies.
