What you can expect:

You will hear from a different guest speaker each month who will share their stories and experiences.

As well, participants are encouraged to share and connect and build relationships and connections.

It is a night with no expectations, just a safe space for us to connect. 

An evening to bring together those working the front line, to talk, listen, share, and connect.

As members working the front-line and supporters of these members, we have a unique thread that links us all together and there is a powerful strength that happens when we come together and build relationships with one another. 

~ Are you a member of the front-line?

~ Are you a family member or close friend of someone on the front-line?

~ Are you looking to connect with others?

~ Looking to share your story and feel heard and supported?

~ Feeling alone and like nobody understands what you are going through?

Guest Speaker: Jeff Berger

Jeff Berger served in the Canadian Armed Forces as a member of the First Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and 1 General Support Battalion from 1996 to 2006 which include a deployment to Kosovo as well as several missions and exercises in both the US and Canada including the floods in Manitoba, Ice Storms in Quebec and Fires in Kelowna.


After experiencing cumulative injuries Jeff was left no longer deployable and eventually medically released.  Having been an exemplary soldier this was extremely difficult to accept and the pending transition left him wondering what was next.  Jeff will be sharing his story of transitioning from the military culture into the blank slate that was before him and how he has grown from the experience.
