ABSTRACT

Canada, Getting It Right This Time: The 1994 Defence White Paper   [open pdf - 163KB]

The author of this paper argues that Canadian defense policy and strategy traditionally have been made in "times of penury." During the Cold War, Canadian policy was one of "strategy of commitment," and since the end of the Cold War, that policy, a "strategy of choice" as set forth in the 1994 Defence White Paper, seeks to provide a role for defense which more closely matches commitments with capabilities.
