The snowy owl, a symbol of wisdom and vigilance, embodies the unit’s know-how and efficiency in providing services. The interlaced white birch and sugar maple trees, species indigenous to the area, symbolize Ottawa and Gatineau, the two sister cities served by the unit. The stumps allude to the support provided by the unit, and their roots represent the diversity and number of services offered. The Motto translates as "Actions through integrity" indicates the Unit's Mission. The badge was granted February 15, 2022.
