OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Canada’s Department of National Defense is investigating a possible hack of its main recruiting website.

Users trying to access the website forces.ca earlier on Thursday were being redirected to what appeared to be the Chinese government’s main page.

The Chinese site has since disappeared and has been replaced by a Government of Canada error page.

A National Defense spokesman said the department is aware of the situation and looking into it.

The recruiting site is separate from the department’s main site at forces.gc.ca.
