New A/VCDS to assume position May 30

Article / March 6, 2017

Lieutenant-General Alain Parent will assume the position of Acting Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff from Vice-Admiral Ron Lloyd as of May 30, 2017.

This change will enable Vice-Admiral Lloyd to return to the significant task of leading the Royal Canadian Navy full-time.

I would like to thank Vice-Admiral Lloyd for his outstanding work in filling a critical role to the institution during a demanding time and I look forward to working with Lieutenant-General Parent.

Lieutenant-General Parent's replacement as Deputy Commander, Allied Joint Forces Command Naples, will be announced in the near future.

J.H. Vance
Chief of the Defence Staff
