Non-traditional Military Training for Canadian Peacekeepers examines the training needs of professional peacekeepers in the 1990s. Over the years, Canada has contributed huge amounts of financial support and personnel to United Nations peacekeeping missions. While our peacekeeping endeavors have traditionally been a source of national pride, the events in Somalia cast a shadow over the Canadian peacekeeping record. This study, prepared for the Commission of Inquiry, asserts that the skills acquired through training undertaken by the Canadian forces are inadequate to prepare troops for the requirements of modern-day peacekeeping. The authors suggest ways in which training must be adapted, and offer options for improvement in order for Canada to have the best peacekeeping forces possible.
