The Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of National Defence, today announced the completion of the new 3rd Canadian Division (3 CDSB) Headquarters building in Edmonton. During his visit Minister Nicholson also toured the new Training Accommodations barrack for Canadian Armed Forces members, which features modern and sustainable design.
The new headquarters building will serve as the final step in the consolidation of operations at 3 CDSB Edmonton. This new facility will serve as a combined Headquarters for 3rd Canadian Division, Joint Task Force West, and 3rd Canadian Division Support Group. These organizations were previously housed in two sites that were more than 10 km apart. The new building will replace the separate sites which previously housed these organizations, thereby increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the base.
The overall project value for both facilities is a combined total of approximately $74M.
