By April 20, 2016 No Comments


Reservists are cost-effective and integral to civil-military relations. However, training and retention have been affected because Reserves are now understrength.  At Canada’s Defence Perspectives 2020-2050: Recapitalization and the Canadian Forces conference on March 29, 2016, a special presentation outlined the need to revitalize the next generation of Reserve leadership.

LCol (Ret’d) John Selkirk, Executive Director, Reserves 2000 and Col (Ret’d) Dr. Paul de B. Taillon, Adjunct Professor, Royal Military College presented “Prudent Defence: The Military and Social Benefits of a Strong Canadian Forces Reserve.” It was moderated by Captain Marta Rzechowka, Senior Warning Analyst, Canadian Armed Forces.
