Administrative history

The Federation of Military and United Services Institutes of Canada (FMUSIC) was founded in 1973 to bring together the various United Services Institutes in Canada recognized by the Department of National Defence, and to further their goals without impinging on their autonomy when dealing with the National Defence Headquarters. Another aim of FMUSIC is to support Canada's development of effective military and non-military policies and capabilities through;study, research and through the submission of position papers to the appropriate government bodies. FMUSIC also endeavours to communicate the defence needs of Canada to the Canadian public.
