CBC News reports:

[Canadian] Military police conducted 135 sexual assault and misconduct investigations last year, a one-third increase from 2014, CBC News has learned.

Only a fraction of the complaints — 17 of them — were directed from the newly established crisis response centre at the Department of National Defence.

That organization was set up in the aftermath of a scathing report last year by former Supreme Court of Canada justice Marie Deschamps, who documented what she described as an "endemic" culture of sexual harassment in the military.

The U. S. DoD released figures for 2015 recently and can be viewed at this link.
