Chain Of Command

'Chain of Command' is defined as the line of authority and responsibility along which orders are passed.
In the Navy League of Canada we also use the Chain of Command as a problem solving model.

The following list shows the progression a cadet may follow
should they have a problem.

  • Divisional Petty Officer (DPO)
  • Divisional Officer (DO)
  • Executive Officer(XO)
  • Commanding Officer (CO)
Chain of Command

When using the chain of command, the cadet must give sufficient time for the issue to be dealt with before escalating it to the
next level. As with requests, if the cadet is not comfortable in going to the DPO, then he/she can go directly to the DO.
