September 20, 2018 – The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) has completed an internal review of all 2010-2016 Canadian Forces Military Police (CF MP) sexual assault files concluded as unfounded. CFNIS assigned a member that reviewed the 179 files from early 2017 until July 2018 revealing that:
• 113 cases remained as unfounded following this review;
• 43 cases had been misclassified; and
• 23 cases were identified for further investigation.
The Canadian Forces Provost Marshal and CF MP Group Commander directed the CFNIS to conduct the internal review following the Globe and Mail publication in 2017 of its two-year investigative report into unfounded cases of sexual assault.
