Canadian Forces Grievance Board
The Canadian Forces Grievance Board (CFGB) provides an independent and external review of military grievances referred to it under s. 29 of the National Defence Act and provides findings and recommendations to the Chief of the Defence Staff and the Canadian Forces member who submitted the grievance.
Since it began operations in June 2000, the CFGB has established itself as a centre of excellence for military grievance resolution and has developed, over the years, extensive expertise in a multitude of subjects related to the administration of the affairs of the Canadian Forces. The CFGB has also acquired a body of knowledge arising from its review of grievances and is able to identify trends and systemic issues which are passed on to the senior leadership of the Canadian Forces.
