  1. Congratulations Josh. I look forward to working with you (still).
  2. All - This event has been postponed. This is due primarily to the conflict of this meeting with the North East FNO which will see a lot of you controlling while the meeting is happening. Rather than have so many of you absent who may wish to be here. We will announce a new date soon. We would encourage you to still submit questions to us for when the meeting is rescheduled via this link: https://forms.gle/yLLt4D1tigw2yR6W6
  3. This year has brought unexpected challenges for VATCAN and our controllers, and we thank you for all the effort and commitment you’ve shown as we adjusted in tough times. We wish you the very happiest and most peaceful of holidays and look forward to a new year full of wins and successes big and small. Cette année nous a apporté des défis inattendus pour VATCAN et nos contrôleurs, et nous vous remercions pour tous les efforts et la détermination dont vous avez fait preuve pendant que nous nous adaptions à des temps difficiles. Nous vous souhaitons les plus belles fêtes tranquilles et nous attendons avec plaisir une nouvelle année pleine de réussites et de succès, grands et petits.

  7. Join the Toronto FIR for drinks to celebrate the new year with "Champagne in Toronto." Friday Night Ops returns north of the border for the first FNO of 2018. Fly in or out of Toronto Pearson International Airport (CYYZ) for the first time since LAST YEAR! Event time 2359-0500z. See you in the skies!
  8. Hi Jeff, The Town Hall's agenda will be discussed at the upcoming Q3 Meeting for VATCAN Executive, FIR Chiefs and Chief Instructors. They will be able to provide the agenda to their members prior to the event. I anticipate some discussion regarding upcoming Training initiatives and policy changes, the new VATCAN VA Partership Program Pilot Project and more. What you have suggested regarding each FIR having an opportunity to speak is going to be happening at the Q3 meeting. Every member will have an opportunity to speak, if they wish to do so, at the Town Hall. Questions should be focused around topics at hand. Inappropriate questions include, but are not limited to, questions regarding specific members, disciplinary action taken or not taken by the division or the network, etc. Haven't decided on a caterer yet. Was thinking subs. Subway or Quiznos?
  9. Jared, The VATCAN Town Hall is being held to provide members with an outlet to ask constructive questions regarding the division. Questions will be answered, so long as they are appropriate. Thanks.
