Personnel Uniforms and Identification
These technical specifications (T-805) set out the requirements for signatures and the Canada Wordmark on department-issued personnel uniforms and identification cards. The requirements below are read in conjunction with the National Joint Council Uniforms Directive.
Consult your Federal Identity Program coordinator for more information.
- The Government of Canada signature or departmental signature and the Canada Wordmark are applied to all uniforms.
- The official symbols are applied within the upper third of either the front or shoulders of shirts or outer-garments. Figure T-805 above illustrates three options:
- positioning on the left and right shoulders (A)
- the upper left front (B)
- integration with a name/service tag (C – in combination with A or B).
- The signature and Canada Wordmark are displayed prominently, using a highly contrasting colour, and are not visually overshadowed by other operational marks or insignia.
- Other operational markings are permitted on uniforms for the purpose of indicating the name or function of authority of the employee.
- Department-issued identification cards include a signature and Canada Wordmark. No other logos are used.
- Information on a function of authority, such as public or peace officer powers under an act or regulation, is accompanied by a signature and the Canada Wordmark.
- The Arms of Canada is applied to uniforms or identification cards only if the department has been authorized to use the Arms in their signature.
