International Women's Day- PEI Regiments Open House- March 9th, 1pm

The Prince Edward Island Regiment (RCAC) will be hosting an International Women’s Day open house on March 9, 2025, at 1:00 pm. The open house will take place at the Lieutenant-Colonel J. David Stewart DSO, ED, CD Armoury in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, with support from 33 Field Ambulance, The Halifax Rifles and 36 Signal Regiment.

This event will be led by female members of the Canadian Armed Forces from our region, to showcase and recognize the contribution of these women locally, nationally, and internationally, and foster an understanding of the opportunities available for women who wish to serve in the CAF.

The goals of this event include the following:

Leveraging personal experiences of uniformed women through an interactive and immersive learning experience, attempting to create synergy between the CAF and community representatives;

Creating a shared experience in the spirit of inclusivity and equality within the community by highlighting the various occupations available for women that are considering careers in the CAF;

Raising awareness of the skills and achievements of women serving in the CAF and recognizing them in the workplace to the local population; and

Informing the public about misconceptions they may have about military service and break down some of the barriers that may discourage women from joining the CAF.

The event will begin with women speaking about their experiences serving in differing military trades. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour displays where they will see how equipment is used and try their hand at some soldier skills. The evening will finish with an informal gathering on the armoury floor, where our soldiers will answer attendee’s questions.

We ask that those interested pre-register for this event, so we may send you an information package via email. The same email address will also be used in the event of inclement weather necessitating a postponement or cancellation; it will not be used for any other purpose. Please use this link to register: https://forms.gle/Eg5uwmHfRXma5Nxe9

To request further information, please contact the Regiment Orderly Room at 902-368-0108, and our staff will direct your question to the appropriate person.
