PSP Reconditioning Program 

Goal :

 Provide a constant and homogeneous reconditioning program establishing links between medical rehabilitation and physical condition (rehabilitation - reconditioning - employment - lifestyle). The goal is to maximize the functional independence of all ill and injured military personnel, and to maximize their chances of fully returning to active military service (meeting the need for universality of service).

The RS coordinates and delivers standardized fitness programs for CF personnel with functional (emotional and physical) limitations and medical conditions, as recommended by the Canadian Forces Health Services Group (H Svcs Gp FC).
