The Garrison Comunity Council - Building closer connections between
Canadians and members of our Military Community.

A Garrison Community Council is a grass roots, citizen based initiative bringing together
members of the community from business, government, education, service clubs, associations
and other interested individuals to build a greater understanding of the Canadian Forces
through engagement and participation with the local military community.
