It’s all coming together for the naval reserve centennial
Role of the Association
The Association celebrates the naval and civilian contributions of participants in the Canadian Naval Reserve and identifies, preserves, and promotes the history and values of the UNTD program and its successors with an emphasis on citizenship, leadership, honesty, commitment, service and personal discipline, by providing opportunities for members to support the Navy and for convivial social interaction.
Members of the Association have a continuing interest in the Royal Canadian Navy and, through individual members, with Naval Reserve Units across the country where joint events are encouraged.
The Association diligently maintains a database of members and potential members containing secure contact information that can be made available to facilitate meetings or reunions. A version of this database is on-line HERE.
Membership dues are optional. Active members are those who choose to enthusiastically participate in the affairs of the Association, who may vote at meetings and who pay dues. All members for whom contact information is available receive the periodic newsletter and are welcome at Association events.
The Association is not politically active and plays no advocacy role. It is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit, network of persons with a Board of Directors responsible to Active members at General Meetings.
As a national organization the strength and vitality of the Association hinges on the connectivity of all its members through the regular sharing of information and participation in activities aimed at ensuring everyone can feel ‘counted-in’ .
