About The C.A.V.
Since the Canadian Army Veteran (CAV) Motorcycle Units were started in 2003, they have assisted, and continue to assist, numerous charities in achieving their monetary goals. Charity Event Riding and Community Support Events are an integral part of many of our members.
It is not mandatory for members to participate in these adventures, but there are always those willing to assist in International, National and local charities. There are certain charities, such as ICROSS, and the Tony Stacey Centre for Veterans Care that the CAV/VAC supports directly. All monies raised go directly to these charities. The CAV/VAC also assists other events such as the "Red Ride" and "Ride for Dad" by providing volunteers and participating in the rides.
The CAV/VAC will continue to support charities and fund raisers and all members are to be congratulated for the continued support that they offer.

Our Dunkirk Unit was formed in 2008 founding members;
Roly 'Chopper' Leger,
Ron 'Shooter' Surette,
Gene 'Rockstar' Seaman.
Prior to 2008, the C.A.V. unit in closest proximity to the Moncton area, was the Passchendaele Unit, based out of Oromocto, NB. Roly and Ron (Moncton area residents) and Gene, who resides near Pugwash, NS were members of the Passchendaele Unit, but due to the travel involved, and the increased interest, they decided there should be a Unit closer to home, Moncton, NB.
The new Unit was assigned the name Dunkirk.
The Dunkirk name pays tribute to the liberation of Dunkirk that had Canadian troops involved called the "Siege of Dunkirk". (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Dunkirk_(1944–45)
Roly 'Chopper' Leger, then became the first President of the 2nd C.A.V. Dunkirk Unit.
