The Base Commander invites you to Defence on the Dock

Defence on the Dock

To the people of the Greater Victoria area and beyond, it is my pleasure to invite you to Defence on the Dock at Ogden Point. This free event takes place on September 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt has been part of your community for more than 100 years and during that time the Canadian Armed Forces has changed considerably into the versatile, active, and modern military it is today. We want to show you what the base is now!

Defence on the Dock is bringing CFB Esquimalt to you! Come to Ogden Point and interact with the military and civilian personnel who work on the Base, learn about the activities and missions that we are engaged in every day, and see first-hand the equipment and assets we use to serve you in the defence of Canada.

Defence on the Dock is a free public event which includes a collection of interactive displays and demonstrations from units found at the base.  We will be sharing with you demonstrations from the Fleet Diving Unit, music from the Naden Band, members from the Naval Tactical Operations Group, artifacts from the Esquimalt Harbour environmental projects, Cadet displays and so much more!

Highlights of the day will include tours on 3 different types of Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships, a chance to see our helicopters up close and the SkyHawks parachute team will fill the sky!

There will be numerous activities directed towards kids, information on both military and civilian career opportunities, exciting demonstrations, and informative displays. I look forward connecting with you, our community on September 30th as we bring CFB Esquimalt to you!
