In her role as Air Combat Systems Officer with 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron, at 19 Wing Comox, British Columbia, Captain Paige Campbell strives “to always be learning, having an open mind and a positive attitude.” She believes this mindset “will take you further than you know. You never know if you will enjoy or excel at something until you try it."

Capt Campbell brings this same point of view to her athletic pursuits as well as her work with the RCAF. She is a two-sport athlete who won two national gold medals in 2019 as captain of the 19 Wing Women’s Volleyball Team, and as a member of the Canada West Women’s Soccer Team. The leadership she exhibits contributed greatly to the success of both teams. 

When she was posted back to 19 Wing in 2019, she rejoined the women’s volleyball team. She served as the setter when they won the CAF women’s national volleyball championship. The pennant for that win is proudly displayed in the trophy case at 19 Wing Comox alongside the tournament’s coveted trophy.

Capt Campbell was awarded the RCAF Female Athlete of the Year to recognize both her commitment to, and success in Canadian Armed Forces sports, as well as her participation and contribution to several civilian sports organizations. 

Being a part of sport in the CAF is important to Capt Campbell. “It is great to reconnect with old friends and to compete at a high level.”

Bravo Zulu, Captain Paige Campbell!

Social Work Officers deliver professional social work services in a military setting to support the morale, efficiency and mental health of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and their families. Social Work Officers offer clinical social work services similar to community mental health and social services agencies.

As well as the full range of challenges common to Canadian society, CAF members and their families cope with additional stresses associated with frequent moves and separations. These stresses can give rise to social and family circumstances that involve complex social work interventions.

The primary responsibilities of a Social Work Officer are to:

         - Provide clinical intervention services
         - Assist in the resolution of compassionate situations
         - Consult with and advise leaders on the social circumstances encountered by personnel in their units
         - Investigate and report compassionate situations
         - Deliver preventive and rehabilitative programs in the areas of:
                   - Pre- and post-deployment stress
                   - Suicide prevention
                   - Family violence
