MARPAC Expo 2015 a huge success!

Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt hosted the MARPAC Expo on Thursday, February 5, 2015, at the Naden Athletic Centre (NAC) upper and lower gyms, and outside. More than 800 DND employees attended the event to check out the 120 booths offering education, recreation and wellness services and products. Organized by Lookout newspaper, the event was in direct support of the base’s growing health and wellness movement. Big thanks to sponsors Hotel Grand Pacific and Laser Centres for Health whose generous financial contribution made it possible to offer 500 free meals to the Defence Team for Deadbeetz and Street Car Named New Orleans food trucks, plus free coffee from Serious Coffee.
The purpose of the MARPAC Expo is to present information and resources in three areas of focus to the Defence Team and their families: employment possibilities within the Defence Community and government agencies local and national education institutions; and internal and Greater Victoria recreation, health and wellness programs, clubs and businesses.
MARPAC Expo is the ONLY show on base that brings together education, health, fitness, wellness and recreation products and services under one roof!
A booth at the Expo is $385.
