CAF Transition Group Welcomes New Commander

Brigadier-General Dyrald Cross has assumed command of the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group from Major-General Mark Misener during a small ceremony at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. Vice-Admiral Haydn C. Edmundson, Commander, Military Personnel Command, presided over the ceremony which can be viewed on the CAF Transition Group Facebook page.

Brigadier-General Cross becomes the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group’s second commander since it was stood up in December 2018. He will lead the formation as it continues to grow its capabilities and deliver on the mission to provide personalized, professional, and standardized casualty support and transition services to Canadian Armed Forces members and their families to include providing care for ill and injured personnel, their families and the families of the deceased.

“I want to thank Major-General Misener for his tremendous work over the past three years in guiding the stand-up of the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group, implementing its initial operating capability, and planning for its future. I have every confidence that Brigadier-General Cross will carry on the formation’s vital work in caring for our ill and injured, as well as ensuring that transitioning members and their families are set up for future success.” Vice-Admiral Haydn C. Edmundson, Commander, Military Personnel Command

“I am honoured to have been selected as Commander of the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group. It is an exciting time to be part of this formation and its ongoing evolution. Together with the entire Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group team, I look forward to continuing to transform the transition experience and empowering our Canadian Armed Forces personnel and their families for the next step in their journeys.” Brigadier-General Dyrald Cross, Commander, Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group
