Ottawa & Online nationally: Defence Team Career & Networking Fair @ Online & multiple locations, incl. Diefenbaker Bldg
Oct 17 all-day

The Blueprint 2020 team invites all of the Defence Team, including civilians, serving Regular and Reserve Force members, current and past students, to the first Defence Team Career and Networking Fair.

The Fair will be held on 17 October, 2018 in Ottawa, at the Diefenbaker Building, at 111 Sussex Drive, as well as in numerous locations across Canada. 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.

The Fair will be your opportunity to discover the diversity of occupations that exists within the CAF and DND, including areas of growth and employment gaps.  This event provides an excellent occasion for those personnel facing transition, such as students and retiring CAF members, to explore the options for the next phase of their career. Kiosks and workshops will also showcase job-related services and benefits, and inform you on the resources available to ensure your professional development, health and well-being.

The “Career Connections” networking portion of this event will be your chance to explore career opportunities by talking directly with functional and organizational leaders and recruiters. A panel will discuss “Keys to Success: Candid advice on how to succeed in your career”.

Ottawa: The Hardest Battle in History: Two Controversies and the Canadian Corps at the Second Battle of Arras (CWM) @ Atelier A, Canadian War Museum
Oct 18 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

The commander of the Canadian Corps, Lieutenant-General Sir Arthur Currie, called the Second
Battle of Arras, 26 August to 3 September 1918, the hardest battle in its history. Often lumped in with
the other engagements of the Hundred Days campaign, Second Arras featured a prepared German
army defending a zone of sophisticated defences 15 kilometres deep, against a corps restricted to two
Canadian divisions at a time and with only minimal tank support. The presentation will examine two
key decisions during the campaign that remain controversial. The first was Currie’s retention of the
exhausted 2nd and 3rd Divisions for a third day of attacks on 28 August. The second analyzes the
problems that led to the repulse of 4th Division in its advance after it captured the Drocourt-Quéant
Line on 2 September.
