What They Do
Logistics Officers support the Canadian Forces by providing services in the fields of human resource management, supply, finance and food services.
In the field of supply, you will be responsible for receiving, warehousing, as well as the control, procurement and issue of military equipment and materiel. You will supervise other officers, as well as supply technicians and civilian employees.
In the field of finance, you will be responsible for providing your unit with management services, such as budget preparation, as well as providing accounting services in connection with the commitment of public and non-public funds. You will supervise other officers, Resource Management Support Clerks and civilian employees.
In the field of food services, you will be responsible for the planning, organization, direction, control and evaluation of work performed in food services. In the course of your duties, you may be called upon to supervise people undergoing on-job training, as well as supervising Cooks and civilian employees.
Support officers are also called upon to play a leadership and advisory role in two broad areas: human resource management and personnel services. In the former, support officers provide commanders with advice on all aspects of personnel management and military careers, including file management, performance evaluation, career counselling, the preparation of members' release documentation, and the arrival and departure procedures involved in the movement of members. In the second of these areas, that is, personnel services, support officers are responsible for the supervision and administration of services to members of the Canadian Forces and their families. They also coordinate medical, dental and legal services, social assistance and the services provided by the Chaplains and Military Police.
