The public is invited to participate in the Canadian Army Reserve Open house and Job Fair on Saturday, September 29. The Sault Ste. Marie Armoury will open its doors to showcase the many employment opportunities available in the Army Reserve.

Visitors can also view interactive displays and participate in activities throughout the day. Interested individuals will also be able to apply on location.

The Army Reserves offer great leadership opportunities, where Canadians can learn many new and transferable skills that they can apply in their existing careers and daily lives; all while proudly serving their country.

Recruiting new members to the Army Reserves is a nation-wide Army effort under Strong, Secure, Engaged: Canada’s Defence Policy. The Government of Canada has committed to increasing the size of the Reserve Force to 30,000 (an increase of 1,500) and to reduce the length of time it takes for an individual to join the Reserve Force to approximately 30 days.

The Canadian Army Reserve Open House and Job Fair at 375 Pine Street will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 09:00a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
