2nd Annual Captain Nichola Goddard Reception Series
About the 2nd Annual Captain Nichola Goddard Reception Series
True Patriot Love is hosting three separate Captain Nichola Goddard Receptions presented by Bennett Jones in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto to honour women in the Canadian Armed Forces. Bringing together military members, business leaders and community partners, these events will provide insight and generate inspiring discussion surrounding the unique experiences of women who serve. Building on the success of the inaugural 2018 reception in Toronto, the events will include a panel of women from the military community discussing how their military careers have shaped them as leaders.
The events will take place on October 23 in Vancouver, October 24 in Calgary, and October 30 in Toronto with the goal of raising upwards of $100,000 collectively for the Captain Nichola Goddard Fund.

Through the Captain Nichola Goddard Fund, True Patriot Love provides national funding to directly benefit community programs that support servicewomen, Veteran women, and their families. The Fund was established in memory of Captain Nichola Goddard, the first female Canadian soldier to die in a combat role.
“We started the Captain Goddard Fund to celebrate and serve strong women like Nichola who have the courage to never take no for an answer. They are the servicewomen, female Veterans, and their families, who protect the values integral to Canada and stand on guard for those less fortunate around the world.”
Katherine Rusk, Sister of Captain Nichola Goddard
