Canadian Forces Intelligence Command (CFINTCOM; French: Commandement d'intelligence des Forces canadiennes, COMRENSFC) is the organization that centralizes all intelligence collection and assessment capabilities of the Canadian Armed Forces. It was formed in 2013 by bringing the head of defence intelligence's office and all the CF's intelligence units into one military formation.[1]

The main formation within the command is the Canadian Forces Intelligence Group, which consists of the following units:[1]

  • Canadian Forces Joint Imagery Centre (CFJIC)
  • Canadian Forces National Counter-Intelligence Unit (CFNCIU)
  • Joint Meteorological Centre (JMC)
  • Mapping and Charting Establishment (MCE)
