All new recruits are required to complete basic training. These courses are designed to teach the core skills and necessary knowledge to succeed in a military environment. The training emphasizes basic military skills, weapons handling, first aid, leadership fundamentals and ethical values. Since physical fitness is an integral component of military service, a large part of the course will be spent in physical fitness training.
Basic training is generally conducted at the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School (CFLRS) in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, and its detachment in Borden, Ontario. For more information visit http://www.forces.ca or call 1-866-462-2769.
