Happy Holidays

Ombudsman Message | 21 December 2018


This holiday season is traditionally a time of family togetherness; the giving and sharing of gifts, talents and time. But for many of our Canadian Armed Forces members and National Defence employees, they face this time away from their families and the comforts of home.

Members of the Defence community are currently on operations in Canada, North America and around the world. Over the holidays, they continue to serve.

I take this time today to thank you for your service. You serve away from your families so that we may enjoy a safe and secure time with ours.

To all members of the Defence community, I wish you the best this holiday season and a safe and happy New Year.

We stand ready to help you and your families.


Gregory Lick
