Canadian Forces Liaison Council


Canadian Forces Liaison Council

The Canadian Army Reserve (ARes) is an integrated part of the Canadian Army (CA) that contributes to the success of military operations at home and abroad.

The majority of Reservists serve one evening a week, one weekend a month. Many also provide essential support for longer terms within the CA Regular Force.

Reservists come from all sorts of backgrounds – from young Canadians graduating in high school or entering universities or colleges, to civic-minded Canadians of all ages who have careers outside the ARes in a wide range of civilian occupations.

Canadian Armed Forces Reservists are valued members of the Defence Team and bring tremendous value to their civilian employers. The Canadian Forces Liaison Council strives to help meet the needs of a robust military as well as employers that support their Reservist employees.

Executrek in Esquimalt

June 26–27, 2019

Employers from Manitoba, including MCSC, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. travelled to CFB Esquimalt June 26-27, 2019 to see how Reservists integrate into the Canadian Armed Forces. After stops at Fleet Diving Unit (Pacific), Damage Control Training Facility Galiano and the Bay Street Armoury, they embarked on HMCS Edmonton for a cruise in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. These ‘Executreks’ are aimed at helping employers better understand the needs of their Reservist employees. If you want your employer to know what you do, contact your unit CFLC rep.
