Over 50 Virtual Shout-Outs received on National Public Service Week

June 30, 2021 - Defence Stories

Way to go! Nice work! Keep it up!
 
The Defence Team came together to recognize our collective achievements during National Public Service Week (NPSW).

Defence Team members were encouraged to leave a message of recognition for a deserving colleague or team member to express appreciation, praise, or acknowledgement for their contributions, and to help stay connected from afar.

Throughout the course of the week (June 13-19), more than 50 “Virtual Shout-Outs” were submitted from across the Defence, demonstrating that a strong culture of recognition and camaraderie exists despite many of us working from a distance. See below for a full list of Shout-Outs.

If you missed your chance to submit a “Shout-Out” during NPSW, it’s not too late. The Corporate Awards and Recognition Secretariat will be accepting messages throughout the year.

How to submit a Virtual Shout-Out

Please e-mail all shout out requests to the Corporate Awards and Recognition Secretariat at Awards-Recompenses@forces.gc.ca. Please be sure to provide the e-mail address of the person(s) being recognized. CAF members and Public Service employees are eligible to receive Shout-Outs.

Your Virtual Shout-out will be featured in an upcoming edition of the Bulletin Board, accompanying other Defence Team members who have received acknowledgement from their colleagues.

Caroline, Stephanie and Sylvie would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the team for still being on board the HRCONNECT ship despite the storms we have been through; the waves of Covid, the winds of the merger of the two teams and the tornado of the reorganization... we are glad you are still part of the crew! Sarah for your calmness and serenity, Khadija for your positivism and delicacy, Laura for your initiatives, Chantal for your relentlessness, Christiane for your dedication, Koren for your wisdom, Ryan for your greatness, Michael for your cheerful personality, Frédéric for your calmness and humor, Véronique for your energy, Valérie for your strength and resilience, Bintou for your splendor, Mélanie for your team spirit Jean-Pierre for your thoughts and ideas, Bonnie for your resilience and your positivism, Nathania for your dynamism and your talent as a translator Laurence for your sweetness, Suzanne for your diplomacy, Ronda for your candor.

My « Virtual Shout-Out » goes out to the amazing team I work with… HR Connect RH… My 2nd family! In fact, I must say that I am truly proud of everyone on this team that works hard every day to be up to the expectations that can provide our services. It’s a pleasure and an honor for me to have such fantastic colleagues, supervisors, technical advisors, team lead and manager. I’d also like to thank them for keeping up the good work throughout all the difficulties that we can encounter now and then because I can always count on them and this makes my days brighter - J Mélanie G.


I would like to acknowledge the dedication and work ethic of Ms. Tammie Bazinet. She has provided invaluable support to managers and myself in several files related to human resources, which allowed us to complete a major project and to staff several new positions at the Royal Military College Saint-Jean, a military institution now recognized as a university-level educational institution. Her team spirit and sense of humor are greatly appreciated and contribute to the success of our team. Thank you Tammie! - Kimberly Anne Mady 


I would like to send a virtual “Bravo!” to Susan Boudreault, Annie Levesque, François Lussier and Martine Meech. Through the ongoing contribution of these four clerks at the 41st Canadian Forces Health Services Centre (41st CF H Svcs C), assistance is given day after day to members who need it. These individuals’ kindness, empathy and dedication contribute to the success of our mission. Without their daily efforts, the 41st CF H Svcs C would not be able to provide as much help as it does. - Captain Daniel Boislard, CD, B.Sc., Inf.


I would like to congratulate the team at the strategic partner engagement office of Eastern Canada for its excellent work! The pandemic certainly didn’t dampen your enthusiasm because you completed over 167 activities in 2020-2021 and you’re on your way to completing 35 more for the first quarter – 200% over target! You paved the way for virtual presentations to students, business people and leaders in the Quebec community and the Maritimes. You used new approaches, such as digital campaigns reposted on partners’ social media and web pages, video capsules for the virtual National Women’s Show, and many more. There is no doubt that a great number of people are now better informed as to what the CAF and DND excel in with strength, courage and bravery. Thank you and bravo to Captain Marie-Christine De Tilly and Cassandra Toussaint-Jean-Pierre - Marie-Anne Jutras


I would like to say Bravo to two of our super PS employees, Christine Tremblay and Martin Lemire. Thank you Ms. Tremblay for your reliability, courtesy and helpfulness at the CAF Recruiting Centre in Chicoutimi.

Thank you Mr. Lemire for your attentiveness and team work. You are always ready to answer our questions about finances. Working with you has been very rewarding and the client service you provide is outstanding. Bravo! - Captain Junior Caron

On the heels of a record flying year, successful participation in OP LASER and OP VECTOR and ongoing support to operations – you are a necessary and vital part of this team.

COVID-19 has been extremely difficult as far as finding new and efficient ways of doing business yet Andrea came up with a hybrid work model and executed it seamlessly.

Shout out to Jack Scrive from ADM(IM) Procurement for his continuous support of the team.

You are such a great part of our team! Thank you for being you, I appreciate all that you do. - Kerri Patrick


I would like to give a shout out to a civilian employee at Naval Fleet School Pacific at CFB Esquimalt, Marie-Raymonde Anderson. Marie-Raymonde is in our procurement cell and she has been essential to the success of the school and the delivery of our courses. Even before Covid she was a solid performer, accomplishing in full her duties and covering off for those who were ill or new personal who were not yet operating at the required speed. When Covid hit and the school had to source materials for cleaning and sanitizing, on top of regular needs, she worked with military and support staff and suppliers to fulfill all our requests while working for the most part from home. Her dedication and commitment allowed the school to start up safely and with the materials needed to succeed.

I would like to publicly thank Ray for her excellent work ethic and her high level of proficiency. - MS Kelley Rooney


I would like to make a shout out to my Manager Esme Bailey (she/elle) who is the Manager of Community Relations and Outreach at the Directorate Army Public Affairs.

Esme has been a great advocate for her team and very creative when it comes to marketing ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with her on numerous important projects from the National Defence COVID-19 Emergency Campaign and Canada Army Run amongst other enjoyable tasks like promoting the Army with tools such as Juno the CA Mascot. Esme shows inspiring leadership traits and recognizes everyone’s contributions to her team, letting them shine. She is very thorough, responsive and inclusive and is a complete asset to DAPA and The Canadian Army. She will be leaving our department shortly for Correctional Service Canada, and I know she will be an exemplary leader there too for her new team. I wish her all the best in her career throughout the public service. - Joanna Gajdicar


PMO ACSV ILS Section would like to give a big shout-out to our Integrated Logistics Support Manager (ILSM), Yasmine Elfeki. Yasmine, you are our unsung hero, you’re exceptionally dedicated to your role and it hasn’t gone unnoticed how much of your own time you sacrifice for the benefit of your team members and the PMO writ large. Whenever we need advice and guidance you’re there; whenever we can’t find a file or reference you’re there; and whenever we’ve had a rough day and we need an empathetic ear you’re there. We really appreciate how you’ve created a harmonious and productive work environment in the ILS Section and your positive influence will undoubtedly transcend to your role as an L2 rep at the L1 Diversity and Inclusion Working Group. It may sound cliché, but you’re truly an inspirational leader, mentor and friend. In celebration of National Public Service Week (NPSW), we just want you to know you’re a fantastic person to work for and you have our utmost admiration and respect. Thank you for everything you do and for your service, we all appreciate it! - PMO ACSV ILS Section

The work of these front line workers has been excellent throughout these unsettled times. These people personify the word service every day. Outstanding work folks! - John Wolford


Massive shout-out to Davia Saab, ADM(IM)’s Events Coordinator and MS Teams Live Events Liaison: Her job changed from organizing ADM(IM) in-person events to establishing MS Teams Live Events for the entire department and supporting the department’s senior leadership. The transition from master of traditional event organization to novice of this technical platform was seamless. She is now an expert at organizing virtual events just a few months later. Her exceptional client service skills and patience coupled with her creative problem solving skills and determination are key to the 100% success rate of Live Events. Congratulations on all of your successes, Davia! - Louise Marin


I would like to personally thank the following ladies who have helped make the National Priority Management Team what it is today and hopefully continue its great work in years to come: Paula Seale (out-going Team Leader and awesome teacher to us all), Erin Brown (incoming Team Leader who will have big shoes to fill), Joanne Trainor (one of our veteran team members who literally takes every client’s needs to heart), Monica Carcary (our newest team member who has a bright future ahead of her), Lynn Greenwald (our Team Advisor who helps us in so many ways), Tanya Quinn (left our team in late March after being with the team over 2 years and whom we miss so dearly) and Melissa Jean-Gilles (currently away on leave but should be back by Feb 2022 – she has been missed).

Every member of our team plays a very important and vital role in ensuring that various types of priorities can be promoted for civilian public service jobs within any Federal Government Department. Every single team member brings their own strengths and makes our team stronger in consequence.

It has been an honour working side-by-side with each and every one of them and I am proud to be the team’s HR Coordinator. When each priority gets an indeterminate job, we see the value of this program. This is a life-changer for many civilian employees and medically-released CAF members.

Way to go Team and keep up the excellent work!!! - Pauline Thomas

I would like to thank soon-to-be Col Cathy Blue on being one of the most understanding, knowledgeable and passionate military leader that I have had the honour to work under. Starting a new position in 2020 during COVID means not having the chance to meet in 3D as a team, yet Col Cathy Blue has managed to give incredible amounts of support and guidance to make myself - along with other newcomers – feel included and truly part of the team.

BZ Col Blue, we will miss you TONS here at DADD 2. Best of luck with your exciting new position, and remember you are always welcome to join in our Teams coffee meets! - DADDS 2 in the RCAF

We are so lucky to have Andréanne Allard-Blanchard on our team. She has stepped up to take on additional responsibilities while we work to complete our intranet web renewal. Whenever there is something new to learn, she is like a sponge and shows us no challenge is too great. She approaches her work with a positive attitude, and when the volume of work gets high she says she is excited to take it on! Having someone like her on the team who delivers and brings great ideas to the table is invaluable. She is valued by me, and all of the chain of command. Without her our internal comms team simply wouldn’t be able to deliver! Thank you so much Andréanne for all that you do. - Kelly MacDonald
