  • Respect in the CAF

    * Military members only

    The “Respect in the CAF” workshop is an interactive curriculum intended to promote respect in the CAF through awareness and understanding, to empower CAF members to take a stand against sexual misconduct and to support victims. Because of the limits of time, the workshop does not provide a detailed account of the laws governing sexual assault nor does it address issues which influence patterns of violence and abuse in the military, such as post deployment adjustment or mental health disorders. Nevertheless, this workshop is designed to foster a sustained change in attitudes and behaviours in order to build a respectful climate and culture within the CAF.

    The “Respect in the CAF” workshop consists of the following three modules and objectives:

     

    Module 1 – The nature and magnitude of sexual misconduct in the CAF

    • Explain why sexual misconduct has no place in the CAF
    • Describe the broad range of behaviours which constitute sexual misconduct
    • Recognize the negative impact of sexual misconduct on victims, the unit and the CAF
    • Recognize the prevalence of myths and paradigms that contribute to a culture in which sexual misconduct is ignored, downplayed or accepted and in which victims are hesitant to report
    • Recognize that professional relationships should be based on trust and respect and align with CAF ethics and values
    • Distinguish between forms of consent and non-consent

     

    Module 2 – Bystander Intervention

    • Employ bystander intervention strategies to safely and effectively prevent sexual misconduct
    • Prevent and respond to acts of reprisal
    • Promote a culture in which bystander intervention is widely accepted, expected, implemented and supported

     

    Module 3 – Victim Support •Report instances of sexual misconduct (duty to report)

    • Recognize why the CAF encourages all victims of sexual assault to file a report
    • Maintain confidentiality of information
    • Identify sexual assault resources provided by the CAF and the community
    • Respond to disclosures of sexual misconduct using a victim-centered approach
    • Demonstrate compassion and empathy for individuals who have been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed
    • Practice self-care

     

    Teaching and learning process

    The “Respect in the CAF” workshop uses a range of teaching and learning processes, including: •Lecture based presentation of key information

    • Interactive and participatory exercises
    • Scenario discussion
    • Handouts provided during and after the workshop, to reinforce learning

     

    The teaching methods in the workshop are interactive and participatory. The workshop addresses cognitive, affective, and behavioural domains: what people know, how they feel, and how they behave. This workshop is tailored to a military context. It uses language and scenarios which are relevant and realistic for the CAF.

  • The Army Voices
    16:30 -17:45
    19-09-30

    The Army Voices was established in 2006 at the request of the Commander of the Canadian Army to support Canadian Army ceremonies and significant events. Its members are volunteers who share a love of music, the desire to showcase their repertoire across the National Capital Region, and have a military connection as either serving or retired CAF members, public service employees or members of CAF families. Through the universal language of music the Army Voices promotes the military ethos and fosters morale and esprit de corps, thus projecting a positive image of the Canadian Army and the Canadian Armed Forces. They perform annually at The Army Ball, ANZAC Day, the CFSU(O) Christmas Service of Lessons and Carols, and other Army and civilian events. Most recently members of the choir performed at the Kandahar Centotaph Rededication Ceremony at NDHQ(Carling) in August 2019.

    We are an SATB choir (male and female), currently 40 members strong, and under the direction of Barbara Clark, CM, and accompanied by Scott Richardson on keyboard.

    The group rehearses on Mondays from 1630 to 1745 hrs at St. John the Evangelist Church, 154 Somerset Street West (corner of Elgin and Somerset). The first rehearsal for the 2019-20 season will be on Monday September 30, 2019.

    Any serving or retired CAF members, civilian employees or family members are welcome to join the choir. Previous choral experience and ability to read music is an asset, but not necessarily a prerequisite. The choir is purely voluntary. Interested members are asked to contact the Choir Manager, LCol Fran Chilton-Mackay (Ret’d) at fran.chilton-mackay@forces.gc.ca.
