What is Strengthening the Forces?

Strengthening the Forces is a health promotion program designed to assist CAF members, Regular and Primary Reserve, to take control of their health and well-being. Maintaining a high level of health improves one's ability to perform effectively and safely on CAF operations, and to enjoy a high quality of life. Some programs are also available to families and other members
 
The health of CAF personnel is an essential and critical component of operational readiness. CAF personnel must be sufficiently healthy and physically fit to function effectively in very demanding, challenging and potentially dangerous situations. STF enables the CAF leadership to develop and sustain a strong, healthy and fit force, in an environment which supports a lifestyle dedicated to eating well, injury prevention, coping effectively and living an addiction-free lifestyle.
