Unlike the armed forces of Canada's closest allies—the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and New Zealand—the Canadian Forces is a single organization with a unified command structure.
Its operational elements are Maritime Command (MARCOM), or the navy, Land Force Command (LFC) or the army, Air Command (AIRCOM), or the air force, Canada Command (CANCOM), responsible for all operations within Canada, Canadian Expeditionary Force Command (CEFCOM), responsible for operations outside of Canada, Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM), responsible for special forces, and Canadian Operational Support Command (CANOSCOM), responsible for providing combat support and combat service support. All of the commands fall under National Defence Headquarters (NDHQ).
The Canadian forces also has a number of smaller organizations which are not part of a command, including Reserve and National Survival, Canadian Forces Communications System (CFCS), and the now disbanded Canadian Forces Europe (CFE).
