Welcome to your news site in the National Capital Region for local Defence community information!
Submit articles, report corrections or ask questions; we love to hear from you.
CFSU(O) has implemented a three-pronged process to disseminate important messages to the entire NCR Defence Community.
First, the website www.infog.ca is the dedicated online resource for information distributed to the DND/CAF community in case of emergencies and delivers essential messages in an effective and timely manner. This tool is accessible to the entire Defence Team, 24/7 from any location with Internet access, as well as on any mobile device with data available. It is also accessible through the Defence-Wide Area Network (DWAN). In case of an emergency or breaking news, a red banner will be visible on the homepage and will redirect to a dedicated section on the website. Members will be able to obtain information on the current situation, points of contact, special instructions, timely updates, and other pertinent details.
An information line has also been installed to deliver any pertinent messages as well as updates. By simply calling 613-995-0133, any member of the Defence Team who does not have access to the Internet can call to hear an up-to-date pre-recorded message on the situation.
To conclude, if deemed necessary an email will be sent to all Defence Team members within the NCR via DWAN containing the relevant information.
For more information please contact the CFSU(O) Public Affairs Officer.
Events in the calendar must relate to the Defence community in the NCR and can occur directly in the workplace, as well as within the community such as social activities, charitable events, information sessions, military concerts and ceremonies.
