Canadian Forces Air Defence Command

Canadian Forces Air Defence Command was a former command of the Canadian Forces created in 1968.

The command consisted of:

* fighter-interceptor aircraft squadrons - CF-101
* radar networks of DEW Line, Mid-Canada Line
* Pinetree Line early warning stations

This command was eliminated in 1975 when the command structure of the Canadian Forces was simplified.

The aircraft squadrons are now the responsibility of the Canadian Forces Air Command. The radar and early warning stations were closed or modernized.
