After 50 years, the Canadian Forces Dress Instructions are being updated. The changes take effect the 6th of September (2022), giving #CAF members greater freedom of choice regarding their personal appearance and removing discriminatory policies. But looks aren’t everything – safety and operational effectiveness are. And for the CAF, those priorities will never change, so we have and will continue to ensure that these changes won’t impact safety or operations.
