Deployments happen frequently at CFB Esquimalt and that means that there are a lot of activities/workshops/groups that take place to support those experiencing a work-related separation. We could use your help providing childcare.
Become a vital part of a successful deployment by getting involved as a Family Network Volunteer. Have fun while making connections with your community. Enhance your group facilitation skills, provide information and support to your fellow military families while gaining experience with communications and organizing special events. Share your skills and knowledge. Interested? You will need approximately six hours per month. We need extra volunteers for all Family Networks to assist with activities, communications and planning.
We are currently seeking a primary Family Network representative for the following network:
- MV Asterix
- Terra Firma Deployed
- HMCS Ottawa
- HMCS Vancouver
We are currently seeking a secondary representative for the following network:
- 443 Squadron
Special events are ongoing throughout the year and always in need of support from volunteers. Jobs vary from planning committees to set-up/tear-down crews to event photographers. Come learn about event planning and execution while enjoying the fun and camaraderie of these special events. Help is needed with:
- Lil’ Sweetheart Dance
- Pacific Women’s Day
- Formation Fun Day
- West Coast Welcome
- Victoria Grizzlies’ Military Family Appreciation Night

Calling all those gifted with sewing skills…We invite you to sew/make masks for those military family community members who need a mask but are unable to sew it themselves. Please place your mask in a plastic bag and contact Ekaterina firstname.lastname@example.org for convenient drop off time and location.
While choosing the material please remember that all genders will be wearing them. Military members are required to wear masks that are black facing outside. By the way, if you need fabric, we might be able to get some for you!
Here is a challenge. Can we sew 100 masks before June 30th, 2020? Who is in?!
