The Candidates Department of the Canada & Bermuda Territory is committed to helping individuals across the territory realize their potential as officers in The Salvation Army. The department works with Divisional Leaders and local Corps to facilitate the application process for those wanting to enter the College for Officer Training as well as supporting recruitment strategies developed by the division. In addition, the Candidates Department hosts an Officer Information Weekend every year and develops themes and promotional tools for Call & Commitment Sunday and a yearly campaign.
