Canada In the Canadian Forces, “Commandant” is the French language title for a major of any unit. However, in English, “Commandant” is used exclusively to identify those commanding officers responsible for units that provide a service or oversight to some lodger population (such as a military school with trainees, a military college with students, a detention facility with prisoners, or a long-term care facility with patients). Prior to its amendment in 2014, the National Defence Act identified “Commandant d’aviation” as the French translation for the rank of Squadron Leader; in practice, neither rank was actually used by the Canadian Forces.
