2006-2007 Annual Report of the Judge Advocate General

The 2006-2007 Annual Report of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) on the administration of military justice in the Canadian Forces was tabled late last week in the House of Commons.

The National Defence Act requires the JAG to report annually to the Minister of National Defence. This report covers the period 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2007:

"From all the information examined it is evident that the military justice system is functioning very well, and that both the chain of command and the individuals who participate in the system have confidence in it as an effective tool for maintaining discipline amongst CF [Canadian Forces] members. In my view, the Canadian military justice system is second to none in the world, yet with its many strengths, three areas have been identified where enhancements can be made to improve the overall health and effectiveness of the military justice system".
The annual report provides an overview of court martial tribunal activity, statistics, military justice training activities, and legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives.
