Reflection at an Inflection Point – Celebrating the past and Modernizing for the Future


The symposium is planned to be one of several events happening across Canada to celebrate 100 years of service for the RCAF. The theme of “Reflection at an Inflection Point – Celebrating the past and Modernizing for the Future” will extract topics from the RCAF’s recently released Strategy to focus on four main objectives including: Value our People, Ready to Conduct Operations, Modernize for Tomorrow and Engage and Partner for Success.  These topics will be evaluated through guest speakers and subject matter experts and/or moderated panel discussion(s), with panelists chosen from key allied commanders, industry professionals, academia, and Royal Canadian Air Force/Canadian Armed Forces leaders.


  • Date: Thurs-Fri (30 – 31 May 2024)
