Administrative History
The Canada-United States Military Cooperation Committee (CANUS MCC) was formed in 1946
and manages cooperation at the military planning level. It provides the primary military staff
linkage between Canada and the United States. The mission of the MCC is to develop and
coordinate CANUS area military defence planning. The Canadian Chief of the Defence Staff and
the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff designate the MCC to be the primary military staff agency
for recommending and coordinating CANUS defence planning. The Canadian and United States
MCC Chairmen are responsible to the Chief of the Defence Staff and the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
respectively, and act jointly on their behalf. More recently, the MCC was called upon to revise
the North American Air Defence Command (NORAD) Terms of Reference, develop a new
Canada-U.S. Basic Security Document and to form a binational Space Cooperation Working
Group to examine areas for enhanced joint space endeavours.
