Upcoming Base/Wing Visits

As part of my ongoing efforts to engage members of Canada's Defence community where they live and work, I’m pleased to inform you that I’ll be travelling to a military base/wing or installation near you. A calendar of events is listed below.

During our engagement visits, my staff and I will meet with military members from various ranks and occupations, their families, caregivers, and civilian employees to talk about the issues affecting them and to offer our assistance should they have any problems or concerns related to National Defence or the Canadian Armed Forces.

We will also meet with the base/wing Defence Team and Defence stakeholders, including chaplains, social workers, medical personnel, Integrated Personnel Support Centre staff, and Military Family Resource Centre employees. We will host a series of town halls with Non-Commissioned Members, Officers, civilian employees and military families.

We look forward to our time in your community, and I invite anyone who has a concern with the way in which they have been treated by the Department or the Canadian Armed Forces to come speak to us while we are visiting.
