Attending as a Military Member

Register as Military

Online Registration System Now Live!

To register online, click on the button above and then select one of the "Military Pass" options under the SELECT YOUR ATTENDEE CATEGORY dropdown, depending on whether you will be on-site attending the entire event.

If you are attending DEFSEC Atlantic presented by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association as an ACTIVELY SERVING member of the Canadian Forces (CF) or another foreign military, then you will be registered under this category. Please take special note that civilians working for the Department of National Defence should register as a Government, NOT as Military. Each individual in this category, regardless of whether multiple members of that unit will be attending, will need to register individually using our online system.

You should be ready to present ID upon request when checking in at the Registration Desk. We should make it clear that this pass is ONLY for those who are actively serving members of their respective military, whether it be Regular Force or Reserve Force.

Please remember that retired military members are NOT eligible to attend under this pass. Neither the NDI75, nor the CFOne card will be considered acceptable identification to attend DEFSEC Atlantic under this pass. The only acceptable passes are the NDI10 (Temporary ID Card), the NDI20 (Canadian Forces ID Card) or the NDI30 (Allied Force ID Card).

It is important to note that a Military Pass does NOT include access to any meals and that all passes are NON-TRANSFERABLE.
