Captain GR Elliott

Operations Officer

 

Captain Gord Elliott was raised on Pender Island, BC and joined the CAF in 2005 under the ROTP program. After graduating with a BA in Political Science from RMC, he was posted to Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) in 2009.

Once at the Regiment, he worked within RHQ throughout the pre-deployment and deployment on Op PODIUM, the CAF contribution to the Vancouver Olympics, before becoming a Troop Leader in Reconnaissance Squadron. In October 2011, he deployed with C Coy, 3 PPCLI, as a Training Mentor on Op ATTENION, Roto 0. Once redeployed, he was posted to HQ 1 CMBG in the summer of 2012.

After working as the Personal Assistant to Comd 1 CMBG, and time in both the G3 and G5 Staffs, he was posted back to the Regiment in 2015 as Battle Captain, Reconnaissance Squadron. Upon completion of the TF 1-16 training cycle, he moved into B Squadron as Second-in-Command until assuming the role of Regimental Operations Officer.

Captain Elliott is married to Robyn, and together they have two sons, Owen and Liam, and a lazy Chocolate Lab, Marty. He enjoys spending as much time skiing in winter and fishing in summer as he can get away with these days.
