Culture Shock

The National Capital Region is a unique posting. You won’t find a central base or wing like you would with many other postings. Instead the military community is highly dispersed throughout the city of Ottawa and surrounding areas, as well as Gatineau. As a result, the military community in the NCR is spread out.
