根据斯德哥尔摩国际和平研究所的数据集2012，加拿大进球数12thwith支出226亿美元军事为GDP的1.3。在2013和2014年间，加拿大的军费开支下降到这样一个程度，那就是从军费开支的十五。因此，可以得出结论，加拿大军费开支减少或减少多年来。当一个国家削减军费开支时会发生什么？一个堕落和不正常的军队。[ 1 ]旁的报告会议国防学院协会和麦克唐纳德里埃所称为“把武装回到行动”，发现大约有9000的员工分配到90年代购买军事装备，但减少了超过一半的4，200年2004。这份报告是基于约五十多个机密访谈，以及目前雇用和退休的政治人员，官员和顾问进行的讲习班。该报告强调事实上降低了哈珀政府预算大幅削减军费开支，对在军事功能造成破坏性影响（Brewster）。有治愈加拿大军队通过增加政府开支的设备但它不值得激烈的努力没有任何适当的规划并没有好处。
According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute Data Set of 2012, Canada scored the number 12thwith spending $22.6 billion in military which is 1.3 of the GDP. Doing 2013 and 2014, the Canadian military spending decreased to such an extent that it was vanished from the fifteen most spending on military countries. Therefore, it can be concluded that Canadian military spending decreased or was reduced over the years. What happens when a country cuts its military spending? A downfall and dysfunctional military.[Para 1] A report by Conference of Defence Associations Institute and MacDonald-Laurier Institute called ‘Putting the Armed Back to Action’ found out that there were approximately 9,000 staff allotted to buy military equipment in 1990s, but was reduced to more than half of 4, 200 by the year 2004. This report was based on approximately more than fifty confidential interviews as well as workshops conducted on currently employed and retired political staff, officials, and consultants. This report emphasized on the fact that decreased military spending had a devastating effect on the function of military under the Harper Government which took sharp cuts on the budget (Brewster).There are drastic efforts to heal the Canadian military by increasing the amount Government spends on equipment but it is unworthy without any proper planning and has no benefits.
There have been massive increases in Government expenditure on military but to no avail. Over the last few years, number of projects has increased and also the requirements of reporting for capital projects by fifty percent according to the report, ‘Putting the Armed Back to Action’. However, it has reaped no fruits. When controversies surrounded the F-35 project and government increased its efforts to purchase fixed-wing search and the rescue planes, more and more requirements for reporting were used, comprising of a novel Public Works secretariat to look over the buying and selling. The system remained unbroken. In the last year, defence procurement was greeted by Government as a big step to heal this destroyed system, but it only led to more delays. Now these delays led to projects losing their purchasing power parity because of inflation reason, which meant that military was only left with some equipment pieces such as capable gear according to the report (Brewster). Therefore, the massive increases in Government spending led to more and more spending by the Government without any proper results or benefits.
