Thrive, not just survive: 3rd Canadian Division explores wellness culture and mindset change

Edmonton, Alberta — It’s a common narrative in Army circles. Soldiers get injured, “gut through it” out of pride, loyalty, or fear of career implications.

The annual Exercise BISON WARRIOR

Army Reservist handles flood, fire, ice, university, sports, overseas deployment, polar bears and violin lessons

Winnipeg, Manitoba — Since Captain Ward Lentz became a Canadian Army (CA) Reservist in 2007, he has battled fire and flood, marvelled at the Northern Lights in the icy North, served as a Reserve infantry instructor, and supported security at the G8 and G20 summits in 2010, all within Canada. Following his deployment to Poland on Operation REASSURANCE Rotation 6 with the Regular Force in early 2017, he returned home with a new vigour for living life fully.

Our History

During the 1970s Camerons served with the Canadian NATO Component in Germany and as Canadian contingents on UN Peacekeeping duties in places such as Egypt, the Golan Heights and Cyprus. In the 1990s soldiers from the regiment participated in OPERATION HARMONY in 1992 in Croatia as well as providing a steady stream of personnel to Regular Force units deploying on other operations.

1994 and 1995 were the years for big parades. The regiment participated in the Freedom of the City parade marking the 50th anniversary of the D Day invasion and the Freedom of the City parade marking the 50th Anniversary of VE Day. In 1997, the Regiment was at ground zero for the "Flood of the Century". The Camerons spent the spring sandbagging and building dykes throughout Southern Manitoba.
