For many years, the CMEA has been advocating for Sappers in many different ways; through the Sapper in need program, a job placement program, an insurance program, a house mortgage program and presentations to recognize the achievements of our members. Our association is also a member of the Council of Defence Associations (CDA). The CDA is comprised of 51 Regular and Associate Member Associations, which represent more than 500,000 regular members, reservists, and Veterans. The CDA continually educates members of Government on critical issues that directly affect our Military Members and their families.
Depuis de nombreuses années, l'AGMC défend les intérêts des sapeurs par l'entremise de programmes d'aide aux sapeurs dans le besoin, d'aide au placement, d'assurance et d'hypothèque, ainsi que de présentations visant à reconnaître les réalisations de nos membres. Notre association fait également partie de la Conférence des associations de la défense (CAD). Celle-ci est composée de 51 associations membres régulières et associées, qui représentent plus de 500 000 militaires et anciens combattants de la force régulière et de la réserve. La CAD travaille continuellement à l'éducation des membres du gouvernement sur des enjeux critiques qui affectent directement nos membres militaires et leur famille.

Moose Jaw Times Herald
Thanks to the military, the Trans Canada's Trail through Saskatchewan will soon be fully connected.
Two reserve squadrons from 38 Combat Engineering Regiment will be hard at work building a pedestrian suspension bridge to cross the Moose Jaw River in Wakamow Valley, with 31 Engineer Squadron from Winnipeg and 46 Engineer Squadron from Saskatoon.
The bridge is being built near the foot of Fourth Avenue Southwest.
National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces
There really wasn't a lot of waiting time to understand the magnitude of the destruction; it was looking out the window of the plane on the way in, that it was very clear, very evident, right from the outset.
When you're standing on a street, you can only basically see the few houses around you, but it's when you're flying in, and you look down and you see whole villages flattened — roads blocked off with rubble and debris. You see a lot of the farmers' fields that are along the coast having been contaminated with salt water.
To be matter of fact about it, you don't choose to be on the DART, you get posted somewhere and you're told you are part of the DART.
As the trial of a former Canadian engineer gets under way for his role in a deadly 2012 garage collapse in Ontario, engineers' groups are pushing to boost professional licensing changes in the province and beyond.
A task force formed by Professional Engineers Ontario, the provincial licensing body for engineering practice, is moving to launch what could become an eventual system of mandatory continuing education.

The Office of the Ombudsman for the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have released a report on Service Attribution, recommending that the CAF determine whether an illness or injury is service related rather than leaving it on the released member to prove their disabilities to Veterans Affairs Canada.
Sappers from Nottingham have set off from London on a cycle challenge to Gibraltar to mark the Royal Engineers tercentenary year.
Members of 66 Works Group, part of 170 Infrastructure Support Engineer Group were waved off at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Liberal government is considering whether to send unarmed observers to help monitor Colombia's historic peace agreement.
Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan's office confirmed recently that Colombia is one of the options being considered as the government decides where to deploy upwards of 600 Canadian peacekeepers. Most of the other possible missions are in Africa.
Sources say Canadian officials have been in contact with the UN looking for more information about the observer mission in Colombia, including potential security hazards.
Some Royal Military College cadets recently got a dose of serious competition against some of the best military shooters in the world at the Canadian Armed Forces Small Arms Concentration.
"It was a pretty good experience," Officer Cadet Luke Tamlin, team captain and fourth-year engineering student, said. "For most of the days, we came in the middle of the pack, which I'm happy with simply because it is our first year."
