Welcome to the new National Defence Headquarters

Scheduled to be completed in 2020, the move to the revitalized NDHQ will consolidate the Defence footprint in the NCR from over 40 different locations. The move will generate cost savings over the long-term, and will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the Defence Team by bringing over 9,000 members together into a modern and collaborative environment.

Below you will find more information on features, updates and resources. You may also visit the dedicated intranet site for further details.

The buildings throughout NDHQ (Carling) are unlike anything else in the Defence portfolio. With plenty of natural light, plants and water, both indoors and out, the Defence Team will have a healthy and inviting work environment. Staff will benefit from having sit-stand desks, personal storage lockers, improved air circulation, and collaborative spaces for both planned and impromptu discussions.

    * 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.

Kathy Roberge: Hello and thank you for joining us. My name is Kathy Roberge. Today I’m at NDHQ Carling with Dan Godbout for another update on the transformation of NDHQ.

Dan, can you tell us a little bit about the alternate work arrangements that are encouraged for employees here at Carling?

Daniel Godbout: So, this alternate work arrangement is really a new way of working. So, we’re looking at a different way, at different hours, different way to deliver what you need to deliver as an outcome from government. You can do it from home. You can do it with a different schedule to come in to work: you can come in a little earlier, a little later, finish a little later. Really, what we’re looking at is delivery of services. What is the outcome you need to produce, and does that need to be done from a desk, or can it be done from anywhere? And it’s really that arrangement between employees and managers that will define what is the new alternate work arrangement. And that’s very important. Not only for the fact that we can produce a lot better if we work differently, but also for the campus itself. So, if you have 10% of people that have an alternate work arrangement that are working from home that day, I’ve got 10% more parking.

At the same time, if you have an appointment and you don’t want to cross town and go back home, you can work with your manager, at least request it, and the managers are very much aware of the alternate work arrangement, they can work with employees and find ways to accommodate your own schedule.

Kathy Roberge: So can you tell me where I can find more information on this?

Daniel Godbout: So, right now, our intranet website has all the information pertinent to this HQ 2020, this move. All the new policies that are being created and about to be published will be provided on the website. So, please, go and consult it on the intranet and I’ll give you all the information you need to know.

Kathy Roberge: That’s it for me, is there anything else you want to talk about or tell us about NDHQ Carling?

Daniel Godbout: Yes, this is a very exciting place to work in. A lot of people came in last winter. CMP, you go and walk through their lines and you talk, we’ve done it. We went over and asked questions, and they’re really enthused. This is a very vibrant location to work from, and they are really happy to have moved here.

Kathy Roberge: Great, thank you very much Dan. Thank you for watching. This has been an NDHQ Carling update.

Kathy Roberge: Hello and thank you for joining us. My name is Kathy Roberge. Today I’m at NDHQ Carling with Dan Godbout for another update on the transformation of NDHQ.

Now Dan, I hear that technology is a big deal here at NDHQ Carling. Can you tell me how the new technology is going to transform the way we work?

Daniel Godbout: So, the new technology that we’re bringing in is a lot like the technology that we have at home. At the same time, we’re bringing in a technology that’s going to be transparent to the user. We’re bringing electronic filing, finally. We’ll get rid of filing cabinets and you will be able to have all your information electronically. You’ll be able to file it through GCDocs. At the same time, we’re giving you mobility, we’re giving you tools that can be used anywhere on the campus. We’re bringing you Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi in Defence, nobody thought that would be possible. We’re giving you Wi-Fi in collaborative areas, in conference rooms areas, in VTC areas. So you’ll be able to get up, get away from your workspace, and go work with your colleagues at other locations.

At the same time, we’re bringing a new printing solution where you can print anywhere within the campus. You will have to tag in, once you get to a printer with your pass, but you can ask to print from anywhere. We’re also bringing voice over IP. So you can be anywhere in the campus, log into a phone, it becomes your phone, your phone number, so you can move within the campus. So this is the technology we’re talking about.

Kathy Roberge: And I guess all this technology will allow employees to work from home?

Daniel Godbout: Yes. So we’re talking about really how we work. So, three pillars to what we’re trying to put here. The workplace: we’re giving you a bright environment to work in. We’re also giving you some tools that are in the background; the IT tools. And we’re letting you work in a different way, so that you are able to work partly from home, partly from other buildings. And this is really the new way of working that you don’t need to be chained to your desk.

Kathy Roberge: Thank you for watching. This has been an NDHQ Carling update.
