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

The two main courses offered at CFLRS are the Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) for Regular Force Non Commissioned Members, and the Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) for Regular Force Officers. The basic training courses can be physically and psychologically demanding, and recruits undergo tremendous physical and mental stress during the training.

Furthermore, the School is responsible for the Distance Learning portion of the Canadian Forces Primary Leadership Qualification (PLQ). Unlike the BMOQ and BMQ courses which are aimed at recruits and officer cadets, the PLQ is for more senior military members.

Finally, the School is also responsible for the Canadian Armed Forces Junior Officer Development (CAFJOD) program which exposes Junior Officers from the Regular and Reserve Forces to a general and standardized body of foundational knowledge through seven Distance Learning modules.

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