From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Armed Forces Council is the senior military body in Canada. It meets to advise the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) on matters concerning the command, control and administration of the Canadian Forces (CF) as well as to help the CDS make decisions regarding these matters. The council replaced the committee of the Chiefs of Staff after Unification in 1968.

The Armed Forces Council is chaired by the CDS and consists of the CDS, the Vice Chief of the Defence Staff, the Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff, the heads of each of the environmental commands of the CF: Maritime Command, Land Force Command and Air Command, as well as other senior officers.
