The Naval Reserve LINK is a magazine published nation-wide two times a year (fall and spring). It is an internal communication tool used by the Naval Reserve.

The publication's mission is to foster exchanges of information between Naval Reservists and to show their accomplishments.

The different Naval Reserve Divisions and sailors across Canada are asked to submit articles on any subject of concern to them.
