Department of National Defence

The Canadian Forces need timely intelligence in support of their operations abroad, in the preparation of peacekeeping missions, and in war situations. The Cabinet also needs reliable information when it is making decisions about sending Canadian military personnel on missions outside the country.

The Director General Intelligence Division in the Department of National Defence (DND) provides defence intelligence on issues involving the use or potential use of the Canadian Forces abroad. It assesses foreign political and military information as well as scientific and technical information. Its intelligence centre provides the Government with an around-the-clock intelligence watch on developments abroad that could affect Canada or Canadians.

The Canadian Forces also maintain at high readiness a counter-terrorism unit, the Joint Task Force Two, prepared to rescue hostages or undertake other actions in response to a terrorist incident.

The Minister of National Defence is accountable to Parliament for the Communications Security Establishment.
