32 Canadian Brigade is actively looking for Sikh and Hindu priests willing to serve in the Armed Forces, Major Gillian Federico, Brigade Chaplain, told South Asian Focus.

The move is part of an overall bid to better represent the evolving demographics of Canada, and of the Armed Forces, she indicated.

Maj. Federico, who resides in Brampton, explained she had been pushing to have priests of various religions enlisted with the Forces in order to better be able to serve the troops.
