I wish you all the safest and happiest of holiday seasons. Thank you very much.

I hope you have a chance to relax, spend time with your loved ones over the holidays, and get some rest. Thanks very much for all the work you have done throughout the year.

Hello! Hello everyone! It continues to be a tremendous privilege for staff at ADM(S&T) to support the Canadian Armed Forces and DND, and we wish you a tremendous holiday period with your family, friends, and colleagues. Happy Holidays!

To all our men and women in uniform who do the great business of recruiting, training, and supporting Canadian Armed Forces members—and especially to those members and military personnel command deployed on operations around the world—I want to thank you for your dedication and service to Canada. I hope that you will have the chance to spend time with your families over the Christmas break and your extended families, and that you’ll have a chance to rest up. I wish you all the best for a Happy New Year.

During this holiday season, take the time to rest and spend time with your family. You are working hard and you deserve it. Be safe, be merry, and a Happy New Year.

On behalf of the entire Materiel Group, I want to say thank you to the Defence Team and everything you do, day in, day out, for the people of Canada. But I also want to say how humbling it is for us to be able to support the members of the Canadian Armed Forces, wherever you’re operating; be it at home or elsewhere around the world. I want to wish you the best for the holiday season and wish you safe travels wherever you may find yourselves.
