Since 1971, the Gregg Centre and the Canadian Army’s Combat Training Centre (CTC) have partnered on an annual conference that brings together instructor staff from the CTC combat arms and combat service support schools, Base Gagetown lodger units, 5 Division reservists, police, civilian practitioners, academics and students to discuss issues that matter to Canadian Army readiness and national security.

The CTC delivers training for commissioned and non-commissioned members at the junior and mid-levels, making this conference an excellent opportunity to disseminate ideas and promote discussion and intellectual readiness across the entire Canadian Army community.
