Blueprint 2020 

We invite all Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, Department of National Defence (DND) employees and current or former students to the first Defence Team Career and Networking Fair taking place on October 17th.

The event will take place simultaneously in Ottawa and in many regional locations including Montreal, Petawawa, Esquimalt, Halifax, Kingston and Gagetown. This nationwide event is also going to be available online through a virtual platform making it easier for everyone to attend from their own workplace or from the comfort of their homes.

In Montreal, the Fair will take place from 8:00 a.m. at the Learning and Career Centre (LCC) in Building 214 at the Montreal Garrison. We will have guests of honour to welcome you and four workshops on topics such as the Staffing Process in the Federal Government, Priority Entitlements, and Second Career Options for CAF members. There will also be various kiosks which will provide you an opportunity to explore, network and more. We will also be presenting a live feed from Ottawa of Senior Associate Deputy Minister Bill Matthews’ address.

This Blueprint 2020 initiative echoes one of the numerous ideas raised by DND/CAF personnel during the 2017 Symposium. The Career and Networking Fair is an opportunity for you to learn more about the diverse and available occupations within the Public Service, Regular Force and Reserves, and explore the various programs and services being offered throughout the organization. You will be able to attend onsite or virtually the various workshops and kiosks and talk directly to subject matter experts, recruiters, peers and functional and organizational leaders.

The Career and Networking Fair is your chance to examine avenues to career enhancement, in a single location where all your inquiries can be answered. Mark your calendars, you do not want to miss out on this! Visit our GCPedia Site:
