Operation Compagnons d’armes is an initiative of
Medical Intelligence CBRNE Inc. (MEDINT
CBRNE Group) and of Capt (retired) Stéphane
Bourassa, M.Sc., CD, Inf. Groupe MEDINT
CBRNE created this not-for-profit organization in
order to contribute to Canadian society in a distinct
and specialized manner.
Operation Buddy Check was established as a
community project on 28 January 2016 using
Stéphane Bourassa’s resources as well as those
of MEDINT CBRNE Group. Two socio-political
triggers motivated the choice to get involved in the
issue of homelessness. The existence of more
than 1500 veterans suffering homelessness is the
first, while the second is the difficulty in getting a
family physician in Quebec.
On 20 March 2017, Operation Buddy Check was
licensed with the Quebec Enterprise Reqister
under the name Operation Compagnons d’armes.
Henceforth a not-for-profit and independent
organization, Operation Compagnons d’armes is
still unofficially known as Operation Buddy Check.
MEDINT CBRNE Group continues to support the
development of this not-for-profit organization and
monitors its support to scientific research
component. Since 2016, Major (retired) Marc
Dauphin, MD, CD, MSM and Corporal Francis
Adam, CD are considered cofounders of
Compagnons d’armes because of their continued
involvement in the community project.
