SUBJ: JOINT PERSONNEL SUPPORT UNIT RENEWAL

1. THERE IS NO HIGHER CALLING THAN THE SERVICE TO ONE S COUNTRY. THIS CALLING IS HONOURABLY TAKEN UP BY OUR PERSONNEL AT HOME AND ABROAD, OFTEN IN DANGEROUS AND COMPLEX CIRCUMSTANCES. BE IT ENGAGEMENT ON THE FIELD OF BATTLE, ASSISTING THOSE STRICKEN WITH PANDEMICS AND NATURAL DISASTERS, OR EXERCISING CANADIAN SOVEREIGNTY, MEMBERS OF THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES (CAF) PERFORM EXCEPTIONALLY. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WORK CAN RESULT IN PHYSICAL, MENTAL, AND EMOTIONAL CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM. WE MUST BE THERE TO SUPPORT THEM

2. CARE OF OUR PERSONNEL IS BOTH A COMMAND RESPONSIBILITY AND A MORAL IMPERATIVE. TO MEET THESE OBLIGATIONS, WE HAVE GROWN THE CAF S ABILITY AND CAPACITY TO CARE FOR OUR ILL AND INJURED MEMBERS. JOINT PERSONNEL SUPPORT UNIT (JPSU) WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2008 TO CARE FOR OUR ILL AND INJURED. TODAY, WITH 1400 PERSONNEL AND 300 CIV STAFF, THE JPSU IS THE LARGEST UNIT IN THE CAF. IN ADDITION, THE INCREASE IN BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO THE ILL AND INJURED HAS INCREASED THE COMPLEXITY OF PROVIDING SUPPORT TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST. IT IS MY VIEW THAT WE MUST RENEW THIS SYSTEM SO AS TO ENSURE IT HAS THE NECESSARY RESOURCES TO ENABLE IT TO PROVIDE THE SUPPORT THAT OUR MEMBERS NEED

3. THIS SUMMER, I DIRECTED THAT AN IMMEDIATE AND FOCUSED JPSU REVIEW BE CARRIED OUT. THE REVIEW TEAM, LED BY BGEN D.J. ANDERSON, HAS REPORTED BACK TO ME, AND WE ARE NOW TAKING ACTION. USING THE JPSU REVIEW AS GUIDANCE, I HAVE DIRECTED THE COMMANDER OF MILITARY PERSONNEL COMMAND TO EXAMINE ALL ASPECTS OF CARE AND SUPPORT FOR OUR ILL, INJURED, AND TRANSITIONING MEMBERS. THE SCOPE OF THE JPSU RENEWAL INCLUDES ITS MANDATE, CONSTRUCT, ALLOCATED RESOURCES,
PERSONNEL POLICIES, AND KEY RELATIONSHIPS FROM BOTH AN ORGANIZATIONAL AND A PERSONNEL PERSPECTIVE. THE RENEWAL WILL BE CONDUCTED IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH KEY STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING THE OPERATIONAL, FUNCTIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMMANDERS WHOSE MEMBERS ARE RECEIVING THIS CRITICAL SUPPORT

4. AS IMMEDIATE MEASURES, AND UNLESS SUCH MEASURES WOULD NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE RECOVERY OF A MEMBER, I HAVE DIRECTED THAT ALL MEMBERS POSTED ON IMPOSED RESTRICTION (IR) TO AN INTEGRATED PERSONNEL SUPPORT CENTRE (IPSC) BE RELOCATED TO THE IPSC NEAREST TO THEIR PRIMARY RESIDENCE BEFORE CHRISTMAS 2015. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, I ALSO AUTHORIZE EACH IPSC TO SECURE ONE DEDICATED PASSENGER VAN BY THE MOST ECONOMICAL MEANS POSSIBLE

5. ALL MEMBERS WHO ARE ILL, INJURED, OR TRANSITIONING TO THE NEXT PHASE OF THEIR LIFE SHOULD BE TREATED WITH HONOUR. JPSU RENEWAL WILL ENSURE THAT EACH MEMBER OF THE CAF CONTINUES TO RECEIVE THE CARE AND SUPPORT THEY NEED

AUGMENTATION CORRESPONDANTE DES AVANTAGES OFFERTS AUX MALADES ET AUX
BLESSES DES FAC A ENORMEMENT ACCRU LA COMPLEXITE DE FOURNIR DU
SOUTIEN A CEUX QUI EN ONT LE PLUS BESOIN. IL M APPERT QU IL NOUS

COMMANDEMENT DU PERSONNEL MILITAIRE DE PROCEDER A L EXAMEN DE TOUS
LES ASPECTS DES SOINS ET DU SOUTIEN OFFERTS A NOS MALADES, NOS
BLESSES ET NOS MILITAIRES EN TRANSITION. LA PORTEE DU RENOUVELLEMENT
DE L UISP COMPREND SON MANDAT, SES MODULES ANALYTIQUES, LES
RESSOURCES ALLOUEES, LES POLITIQUES EN MATIERE DE PERSONNEL ET LES
RELATIONS CLES A PARTIR DE DEUX PERSPECTIVES : CELLE DE L
ORGANISATION ET CELLE DU PERSONNEL. LE RENOUVELLEMENT SERA MENE EN
COLLABORATION ETROITE AVEC LES INTERVENANTS CLES, Y COMPRIS LES
COMMANDANTS OPERATIONNELS, FONCTIONNELS ET DES ARMEES DONT LES
MEMBRES RECOIVENT CE SOUTIEN CRUCIAL

4. COMME MESURES IMMEDIATES, SAUF SI CELLES-CI EXERCERAIENT UN
IMPACT NEGATIF SUR LE RETABLISSEMENT D UN MEMBRE, J AI ORDONNE QUE
TOUS LES MEMBRES QUI SE TROUVENT EN RESTRICTION IMPOSEE (RI) A UN
CENTRE INTEGRE DE SOUTIEN DU PERSONNEL (CISP) SOIENT RELOGES AU CISP
LE PLUS PRES DE LEUR RESIDENCE PRINCIPALE AVANT NOEL 2015. EN OUTRE,
J AUTORISE DES MAINTENANT CHAQUE CISP A OBTENIR UNE FOURGONNETTE
DEDIEE AUX PASSAGERS, ET DE LE FAIRE LE PLUS ECONOMIQUEMENT POSSIBLE

5. IL EST PRIMORDIAL QUE TOUS LES MILITAIRES BLESSES, MALADES OU EN
TRANSITION VERS LA PROCHAINE PHASE DE LEUR VIE SOIENT ETRE TRAITES
AVEC HONNEUR. LE RENOUVELLEMENT DE L UISP NE MANQUERA PAS D ASSURER
QUE CHAQUE MEMBRE DES FAC CONTINUE A RECEVOIR LES SOINS ET LE
SOUTIEN QUI LUI SONT NECESSAIRES
