When Lieutenant-General Wayne Eyre assumed command of the Canadian Army in August 2019, numerous initiatives were underway to modernize the force. With release in January 2021 of Advancing with Purpose: The Canadian Army Modernization Strategy, those initiatives are now aligned and knitted together under “one umbrella” providing a five-year change agenda. In the Fall 2020 issue, LGen Eyre spoke about the strategy and one of it’s two key initiatives, an adapted Managed Readiness Plan to inform how forces are generated. Shortly before he was named Acting Chief of the Defence Staff in February, he spoke with editor Chris Thatcher about the second, Force 2025, a wide-ranging effort to analyze force structure.
