This Act amends the National Defence Act to recognize the historic names of the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Air Force while preserving the integration and unification achieved under the Canadian Forces Reorganization Act.

The amendments alsoprovide that the designations of rank and the circumstances of their use will be prescribed in regulations made by the Governor in Council. Having the designations of rank prescribed in regulations will also allow the Governor in Council to allow for the use of certain designations of ranks traditional to the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army, and Royal Canadian Air Force, and which are not currently found in the NDA.
