This chapter explores the evolution of Canadian staff colleges from their inception during the Second World War to their integration into the Canadian Forces College (CFC) in 1966. In their first years, the Canadian services largely based their own staff college curricula on their British counterparts. The Canadian Army Staff College (CASC) and the RCAF Staff College differed, however in the focus of their content. While the CASC emphasized the tactical level, the RCAF Staff College focused on the nature of air power during the Second World War stressed joint and combined operations at an operational and strategic tier, more in keeping with the model of the USAF Air University. This broader higher-level approach meant that ultimately the RCAF Staff College would serve as blueprint of the joint programme of the CFC.
