Interesting... The Canadian Forces jobs where only women need apply Depending on the week and whether employment equity (or EE) targets are being met, the Canadian Forces periodically closes some of its approximately 100 occupations or trades to any applicants but women. The information is contained in so-called weekly “processing cheat sheets” used by recruiting staff — some of which were obtained by the National Post — and was confirmed by a military source. The Post isn’t identifying that source, at the source’s request, for fear of repercussions. But the commander of the recruiting group, Colonel Luc Sabourin, also confirmed in a telephone interview Thursday that the forms “are a weekly tool to allow us to meet our designated EE (employment equity) targets.” This is pretty blatant. It's hard not to look at this as pretty direct discrimination against men. But this is even worse... The sheets say that Indigenous candidates either are “not required to write” or “must write but don’t need to pass” the CFAT, the Canadian Forces Aptitude Test. Weird. So you can be illiterate and they still want you? I suddenly trust the competency of the Canadian Armed Forces a lot less.
