The aim of the CDA, with a membership of over 600,000, is to contribute to beneficial defence policy and effective armed forces. It seeks to achieve this objective through a combination of advice to government and public information. The public information and education function is carried out by the CDA Institute.
The CDA believes that Canada's best chance for continuing peace at home and abroad lies in having effective armed forces and a civil resource base which can be quickly mobilized. We support maintaining viable collective defence arrangements with the United States, NATO and other allies, and Canada's participation in collective/cooperative security operations under the auspices of the United Nations.
