CANADIAN PARTICIPATION IN U.S. TRAINING PROGRAMS

PC

Mr. Lambert (Edmonton

Progressive Conservative

West):

1. Has the Minister or any of his military advisors decided against further participation by Canadian Service personnel in a number of American military training programs, whether relatively free or at a stated price?

2. Specifically what is the degree of future Canadian participation in such training programs as Course 1181 at Fort Bliss, Texas, a missile guidance training program, in which Canada is not now represented?

October 2, 1968

3. Has the retrenchment in participation in U.S. based training programs resulted in a cut back in the free flow of information to Canadian forces personnel in the relative sectors of military training and equipment?

Hon. Leo Cadieux (Minister of National

Defence): 1. No. Canadian Forces personnel participated in United States military training programs only when similar training is unavailable within Canadian resources. The extent of this training is governed by the availability of funds to cover tuition fees, travel and temporary duty expenses. There has been no other reason to limit participation provided a valid training requirement is established.

2. Attendance at various courses outside of Canada are reviewed annually to determine their relative importance and priority. Two Canadian Forces officers have just completed the guided missile systems officer course 4F-1181 at Fort Bliss, Texas. No candidates are planned for the next course. Should this course be considered necessary in the future it will be included again in the annual review of training programs.

3. No. Canadian defence liaison staff, Washington, and the exchange and liaison program provide excellent channels of communication for relevant training information.
