Regular Force and Primary Reserve Personnel: Have Your Say!

If you have thoughts or opinions on military personnel programs and policies that affect you, then now is the time to share your thoughts in the 2022 Your Say Survey.

This survey is currently open to Regular Force and Primary Reserve members.

“The Your Say Survey (YSS) looks at the effectiveness of the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) from the perspective of individual CAF members.

“The YSS allows members to communicate their experience with a variety of personnel programs and services; and senior leaders use the results to evaluate existing and proposed policies, procedures and programs in the CAF,” said Carina Daugherty, Defence Scientist at Director General Military Personnel Research and Analysis (DGMPRA).

Covering a Range of Topics

The YSS was sent to a random sample of approximately 9,000 CAF members and covers topics such as:

CAF health and wellness programs and services, experiences and concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic,
satisfaction with pay and benefits, and
experiences with harassment and discrimination.

“The Your Say Survey is your opportunity to be heard and to provide leadership with valuable insights on a variety of topics important to military life, which will help inform decisions about military policies and programs that affect you,” explained Daugherty.

Questions about the Your Say Survey can be addressed to Carina Daugherty here, Defence Scientist at Director General Military Personnel Research and Analysis (DGMPRA).

This research has been approved by the DND/CAF Social Science Research Review Board (SSRRB) in accordance with DAOD 5062-0 and 5062-1. The SSRRB approval # is 2033/22F.
