The Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School (CFLRS) is located at the Général-Jean-Victor-Allard Building in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.

CFLRS is a leadership training school for both primary reservist and regular forces. The two main courses offered at CFLRS are the Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) for Recruits, and the Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) for Officer Cadets. The courses can be physically and psychologically demanding, and recruits undergo tremendous physical and mental stress during the training.

Since November 2010, the school also offers a one-week Officer Colloquium (OC) course for non-commissioned members (NCM) that transfer into the officer corps. Furthermore, the school will run a 6-week Primary Leadership Qualification (PLQ) course for Air Force and Navy personnel. Unlike the BMOQ and BMQ courses which are aimed at recruits and officer cadets, the PLQ and OC are offered to more senior military members.

The school's motto is: "Apprendre a servir" - French for "learn to serve". Duty, loyalty, integrity and courage are Canada's core military values.
