DCC kicked off its 70th anniversary celebrations in mid-May, unveiling a new logo and celebrating the recipients of the 2021 National Awards.

Moreen Miller, Chair of DCC’s Board of Directors, congratulated DCC on seven decades of service. “No matter the challenge, you demonstrate consistent and essential support to our Client-Partners and the defence of Canada. And your contributions are felt by the people served in our local communities.” Industry and government partners also sent their congratulations on DCC reaching this important milestone.
