UNTD Association Conference & Celebration

Citizen Sailors Virtual Cenotaph

The Citizen Sailors Virtual Cenotaph project celebrates the Naval Reserve centennial with stories of the 1,769 reservists who died in World War II.

Role of the UNTDA

The UNTDA identifies, preserves, and promotes the history and values of the Canadian Naval Reserve with an emphasis on leadership, honesty, commitment, service, citizenship, and personal discipline.

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’s Nominal List currently contains over 10,300 entries, including almost all who at one time called themselves UNTD cadets. This Nominal List is central to the preservation of the connections between members and is diligently maintained. The List is searchable and can be sorted and filtered.

Active members are those who choose to actively 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 UNTDA 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’ .
