All Updates

Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class or CPO2 is a Naval non-commissioned member rank of the Canadian Forces. It is senior to the rank of Petty Officer 1st Class and its equivalents, and junior to Chief Petty Officer 1st Class and its equivalents. Its Army and Air Force equivalent is Master Warrant Officer (MWO), and is part of the cadre of Warrant Officers.

The French language form is Premier maƮtre de 2me classe (pm 2).


The rank insignia of the CPO2 is a crown within a wreath of laurel, worn on both forearms of the Service Dress tunic and on slip-ons on both shoulders of other uniforms. They wear the same cap insignia as petty officers: a foul anchor surrounded by a wreath of laurel, surmounted by a crown.

Forms of address

CPO2s are generally initially addressed as "Chief Petty Officer Bloggins" or "Chief Bloggins", and thereafter as "Chief", although in correspondence the full rank or abbreviation is used before the member's name. The full appellation "Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class" in speech is generally used only when the "second class" distinction must be made, such as to distinguish between members with similar names but differing ranks, or on promotion parades. CPO2s are never addressed as "Sir" or "Ma'am", regardless of the protocol for their Army and Air Force equivalents; in Naval tradition, the titles "Sir" and "Ma'am" are reserved for officers.
