The Canadian Forces' Decoration is awarded to officers and Non-Commissioned Members of the Canadian Forces who have completed twelve years of service. The decoration is awarded to all ranks, who have a good record of conduct.
Eligibility and Criteria The decoration is awarded to the regular forces, reserve forces, officers of the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC), Canadian Rangers and holders of honorary appointments in the CF. Service in the regular and reserve or auxiliary forces of the British Commonwealth of Nations will be counted towards the medal if the final five years have been served with the Canadian Forces and no other long service, good conduct or efficiency medal has been awarded for the same service. The medal may be awarded to persons in possession of any long service, good conduct or efficiency decoration or medal clasps, provided that the individual has completed the full qualifying periods of service for each award and that no service qualifying towards one award is permitted to count towards any other. The service need not be continuous. This award supersedes all other long service awards for members joining the Canadian Forces after 01 September 1939.
Bars A clasp (bar) shall be awarded for every subsequent period of ten years of qualifying service. The clasp for the Decoration has the shield of the Canadian coat of arms in the center surmounted by the Crown, and is gold in colour.
The clasp is worn centered on the ribbon. When more than one clasp has been awarded, they shall be equally spaced on the ribbon. A silver rosette is worn on the undress ribbon for each clasp awarded.
