Naval Training Group Change of Command

Naval Training Group (NTG) bid farewell to one leader and welcomed another during a ceremony presided by Commodore Patrick Montgomery, Commander of the Naval Reserve, at CFB Esquimalt’s Wardroom on April 25.

Capt(N) Matthew Coates had been NTG’s fourth Commander since its establishment in June 10 years ago. He assumed command in 2021 and has led NTG through a period defined by renewed focus on its core training mandates and increased collaboration with partner agencies to pursue the long-term vision of the Future Naval Training System. Capt(N) Coates relinquished command early to facilitate the transition to his next appointment.

Cdr Darren Sleen, the current Commanding Officer of HMCS Venture, assumed command of NTG and will provide leadership for both organizations until the Commander NTG (designate) Capt(N) Mike Stefanson arrives mid-summer.
