Rank and Insignia

The CFCWO holds the substantive rank of Chief Warrant Officer (if Army or Air Force) or Chief Petty Officer 1st Class (if Navy). Even if the incumbent is a Naval Chief Petty Officer, the appointment title remains "Canadian Forces Chief Warrant Officer".

The rank insignia of the CFCWO is the Coat of Arms of Canada in coloured thread, surrounded by a wreath of twenty maple leaves in gold thread, worn on the lower sleeve of the Service Dress jacket. The cap badge is the Coat of Arms of Canada, in full-colour metallic thread.
