Captain Nichola Goddard Leadership Series
About the Captain Nichola Goddard Leadership Series
True Patriot Love hosted the Captain Nichola Goddard Reception in Toronto on October 30, 2019, and will host two additional receptions in Calgary and Vancouver to honour women in the Canadian Armed Forces. Bringing together military members, business leaders and community partners, this leadership series provides insight and generates inspiring discussion surrounding the unique experiences of women who serve. Building on the success of the inaugural 2018 reception in Toronto, the events include a panel of women from the military community discussing how their military careers have shaped them as leaders. True Patriot Love is grateful to Bennett Jones for being the Presenting Sponsor for all three receptions.
The Calgary reception will take place on March 9, 2020, followed by the Vancouver reception on March 10, 2020. The goal is to raise upwards of $100,000 collectively for the Captain Nichola Goddard Fund, with $53,000 already raised at the Toronto reception in October 2019.

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
