Deploying in 2018?

Do you have loved one deploying in 2018 on HMCS Ottawa?  We have several resources for you:

Leave Travel Assistance (LTA)

Statement from the Command Team of HMCS Ottawa regarding LTA

“OTTAWA will be granting LTA if possible based on individual member’s duties.  We are doing our best to extend the chance for as many people to take advantage as possible.  We were waiting on one piece of information relating to how early we could start taking it, and now have confirmation that we can extend it, even during our second PVST (port visit), the long one in Hawaii coming up in a few days.”
