June 15, 2021 – The Canadian Forces Intelligence Command (CFINTCOM) completed a change of command ceremony today between Vice-Admiral Scott Bishop and Major-General Michael Wright.
The COVID-conscious ceremony saw VADM Bishop, who has been at the helm of CFINTCOM for five years, officially pass command to MGEN Wright, who recently returned from deployment in Iraq as Commander Joint Task Force – Impact. VADM Bishop will be assuming the position of the Canadian Military Representative to NATO in Brussels, Belgium, later this summer.
As the central coordinator for all defense intelligence, CFINTCOM provides credible, timely and integrated defense intelligence capabilities, products and services to the DND/CAF, the Government of Canada and Allies in support of Canada’s national security objectives. Integrated defense intelligence is vital to the DND/CAF and Government of Canada decision-making, and critical to enabling all military operations.
