In 2014, he was posted to 400 Tactical Helicopter Squadron as the Deputy Commanding Officer, a position he occupied until 2016 when he was promoted to his current rank and posted back to Ottawa to manage the Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue project in the Information Management Group.

    Lieutenant-Colonel Doré is a graduate of the Joint Command and Staff program of the Canadian Forces College. He is married to his wife Sasha and together have three children: Nathalie, Matthew, and Andrew.
