The Logistics (Log) Branch is a personnel branch of the Canadian Forces (CF).

In April 2007, the CF Armed Forces Council decided to incorporate the Personnel Administration Branch into the Logistics branch.

Unification[edit]

When the Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force were merged in 1968 to form the Canadian Forces, the administrative Corps of the Army were deactivated and merged with their Naval and Air Force counterparts to form the Canadian Forces' personnel branches.
