Addressing Hateful Conduct in the context of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF): The CAF Hateful Conduct Policy & the CAF Harassment and Discrimination Survey: Hateful conduct and extremism results
(Justin Wright, Dr. Manon LeBlanc, Dr. Jennifer Peach, Chadley Wagar, and François Leconte)

AbstractNote de bas de page 1: Alleged and reported incidents of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members affiliating with hate groups or promoting extremist ideologies are a concern for the CAF. This concern has led to a rapid and robust policy response, the establishment of a new hateful conduct incident tracking system, and an ongoing series of communications and directives from senior leadership across the CAF. To supplement the CAF policy response to hateful conduct, several questions on awareness of, and exposure to, hateful conduct and specifically to extremism were added to the CAF Harassment and Discrimination Survey (CAFHDS). Behaviours examined included promoting beliefs about racial superiority, engaging in ideologically motivated hate speech, promoting hate online through social media, affiliation with hate groups or extremists, and attempts to recruit other CAF members into extremist groups. A total of 4,715 Regular Force and 1,215 Primary Reserve members completed the survey between October 2020 and February 2021. In general, few members were aware of other CAF members, either inside or outside of their unit, who were affiliated with extremist groups. Hate speech and hateful or extremist messages or images/memes posted on social media by a CAF member were the most commonly reported behaviours. These results are among the first of their kind to be collected from a CAF population, and they provide an initial indicator of the prevalence of hateful conduct and extremism in the CAF.
