Canadian Intelligence Corps
The Canadian Intelligence Corps (CIC) was formed during the Second World War. Much of their wartime work involved signals interception and intelligence gathering. It was German communications intercepted by Canadians that helped the British mount their successful attack on the battleship “Bismarck” in May 1941.
During the war the CIC worked closely with British intelligence on determining German Army capabilities, defences and operations. After the war, the CIC merged with the Canadian Forces Security Branch in 1968.
