CommunicationsCanadian Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Branch

The Communications & Electronics (C&E) Branch and a number of affiliated organizations serve a similar objective – that of providing C & E personnel a professional ‘identity’, professional development, and a social environment for the fostering of camaraderie and esprit de corps. While there is overlap in their respective activities, each organization fulfils a meaningful role in the eyes of their members.

The C & E Branch is one of many personnel Branches which were created in 1968 following the integration of the Canadian Forces. The purpose of these Branch structures was to enable members of the Canadian Forces in related occupations to identify with each other in cohesive professional groups
