Preface

The Fundamentals of Canadian Defence Ethics was produced under the authority of the Chief of Review Services, National Defence Headquarters, to provide a general description of the Defence Ethics Program. It also provides an explanation of the background, rationale, and approaches to the Defence Ethics Program. Finally it discusses in depth the principles and obligations of the Statement of Defence Ethics.

The Fundamentals of Canadian Defence Ethics is meant to complement other aids for the practice of ethics in Defence developed by the Defence Ethics Program. The text of the Fundamentals of Canadian Defence Ethics can also be found in the Defence Ethics Handbook which is available both in hard copy and on the Defence Ethics Program web site.

A primary concern of the Defence Ethics Program is to foster the conditions that are conducive to developing and maintaining a healthy ethical culture in defence. The Fundamentals of Canadian Defence Ethics is considered an important and necessary contribution to fulfilling that aim.

Any queries or comments on the Fundamentals of Canadian Defence Ethics can be directed to Major D. Beauchamp, Program Management - Defence Ethics and subject matter expert, Defence Ethics Program, Chief of Review Services, NDHQ, either by telephone (613) 992-7451, fax (613) 992-0528, or internal DND E-mail.
