Administrative Structure


Although it is mentioned in the Veterans UN-NATO Canada rules of engagement that we will never have a structure, a certain administrative structure is necessary to manage the group.  

Five administrative structures were created and they consist of volunteers who have agreed to manage the memberships, promote of the group and make sure the Rules of Engagement are respected.  Veterans UN NATO Canada being a private group, the positions are not voted, they are appointed. 

Here is the composition : 


The national committee will always be composed of seven members : 2 VPs and five other members (Keith McAllister, Jacques Boucher, Denis Simoneau, Claude Cusson, Brad LeBlanc, Christie Strazza and Claude Ostiguy).  This committee will help the National President in his duty and will nominate future National Presidents. Only the National Committee can make changes to the Rules of Engagements.


The President position was created by the founding members to assist the provincial and regional representatives in the management of the group.

Sylvain Bérard sees to the smooth running of the group and solve any problem that arises. 

The President can however, for ethical or disciplinary reasons, and further to a complaint or a description, conduct an investigation and removed himself and the group from any responsibilities to one of its members.  Any person removed from the group will then be informed by correspondence that he or she is no longer a member of the group.   

In association with the President, certain positions were created to relieve the President of certain tasks :


Media representative at national level.


These members are responsible for memberships and managing their province. They are free to create regional subcommittees under their responsibility and to organize provincial activities. When a question or a problem arises, they have to address it to the President.


These members are responsible their region and to coordinate memberships with the Provincial President.  They are also free to organize activities in their region to promote the group.  When a question or a problem arises, they have to address it to the Provincial President.
