Our Mandate

The Canadian Military Intelligence Association (CMIA) was originally founded in 1947 to further the interests of Canadian Military Intelligence after World War II. Today, CMIA is an independent, not-for-profit incorporated organization with over 600 members.  The organization is Canada’s leading advocate for the military intelligence function and welcomes the participation and support of all who wish to further the objectives of the Association. The mandate of the Association is to foster, maintain and promote the traditions, heritage and esprit de corps of the Canadian military intelligence community by promoting the well being of Intelligence Branch serving and retired members, organizing, facilitating and supporting professional development opportunities and advocating for defence and military intelligence.

This web site is intended to inform our membership and the public about the Association and its activities, and about intelligence issues generally.
