March 3, 2019

anada’s Armed Forces are in Lebanon training troops in basic winter warfare which will allow them to better protect their borders, read a Facebook post by Canada’s Joint Task Force - Impact's Canadian Training Assistance Team in Lebanon (CTAT-L).

The training in the “snowy mountains of Lebanon” are aimed to help the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) to improve their basic military capabilities such as patrolling, ski and mountaineering, and knots and ascension/rappelling.


Canada has deployed close to 850 troops to the Middle East as part of Operation IMPACT, which began in 2014 and has since changed from a combat mission against Islamic State militants to a train, assist and advise mission for security forces.

As part of Operation IMPACT, CTAT-L trains LAF forces to secure its border with Syria and also provides cold weather clothing, tool kits for border outposts and combat first aid training.

The Canadian Armed Force (CAF) “operations in Lebanon are part of Canada's whole of government approach to enhancing the security and capability of the region,” the post read, adding that the their “presence in the Middle East is helping to set the conditions for the long-term success of regional partners, like Lebanon, by enabling their military forces to more effectively secure their borders and plan and execute operations against destabilizing organizations like Daesh.”

Canada has also provided LAF logistics trucks and snowmobile trailers in late February during the ceremony marking the graduation of LAF troops from the basic winter warfare training which was attended by Joint Task Force-Impact Commander, Brig-Gen. Colin Keiver, senior ranking officers of the LAF and Canada’s Ambassador to Lebanon, Emmanuelle Lamoureux.

“It is here that the Canadian Armed Forces has a niche opportunity to help build the capacity of the Lebanese Armed Forces,” CTAT-L team leader Lt.-Col David Hill was quoted as saying on another Facebook post, adding that “as Canadians, we know the cold and it’s something our soldiers are used to operating in. We can share that expertise with Lebanese soldiers who are charged with protecting Lebanon’s snowy and mountainous border region.”


In September a report by London-based Asharq Al-Awsat said that Hezbollah’s growing influence on Lebanon’s government has lead the United States to consider stopping to provide military aid to the LAF and other Lebanese security agencies.

International weapon sales to Lebanon are also under heavy scrutiny over fears that they could end up in the hands of Hezbollah.

Israel and Hezbollah fought a deadly 33-day war in 2006, which came to an end under UN Security Council Resolution 1701 which called for disarmament of Hezbollah, for withdrawal of the Israeli army from Lebanon, for the deployment of the Lebanese army and an enlarged UN force in the south.

Senior officials in Israel’s defense establishment have warned that Lebanon’s army has lost its independence and has become an integral part of Hezbollah’s network.

According to the IDF cooperation between the LAF and Hezbollah has increased in the past year and has warned that the next war will see Israel target not only military infrastructure but civilian infrastructure used by Hezbollah.

It is believed that the event of another war with Hezbollah, the IDF’s objective would be to occupy parts of southern Lebanon in order to force a UN resolution that improves the security situation on the northern border.

Canadian special forces were in Africa taking part in the annual U.S.-led Exercise Flintlock.

Canada’s participation in Flintlock 2019 started in Burkina Faso on Feb. 18 and went until March 1.

Elements of the Canadian Special Operations Regiment (CSOR) from Petawawa participated in the exercise, which is part of Canada’s commitment to counter-terrorism and capacity-building in the Sahel region.

CSOR personnel worked with the Forces Armées Nigeriennes in Bobo Dioulasso, Burkino Faso. CSOR also had a staff officer working in the Joint Military Headquarters in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

The Canadian Forces Health Services Group also sent a mobile surgical resuscitation team to provide primary medical support to the exercise.

In total, around 50 Canadians took part in the exercise.

Like in previous years, CSOR focused on providing training in firearms, patrolling and night operations and the Law of Armed Conflict.

Military divers from five nations arrive in Tuktoyaktuk

By Sarah Pruys – March 25, 2019

Tuktoyaktuk and the Nunavut community of Resolute Bay are welcoming military divers from five nations this month.

Divers from Canada, France, Finland, Sweden, and Norway are working to build their ice diving knowledge and test new equipment as part of Operation Nanook-Nunalivut.

Matthew Innocent, a sergeant with the Canadian Forces and a combat engineer by trade, specializes in combat diving. He explained what the divers focus on in their training.


“As a combat engineer, we’re in charge of ensuring that friendly forces can move, can fight, and can manoeuvre. And we want to deny that to the enemy [in a] subsurface and an underwater condition,” Innocent told Cabin Radio.

“It also allows us to work with other Canadian Forces when it comes to water crossings, bottom profiling, or checking out anything … in and around water.

“We’re testing all this new equipment to see how it holds up in the harsh Canadian climate,” he said, adding the equipment includes a new surface supply system – which provides air to divers while underwater.

The task force arrived in Tuktoyaktuk late last week and, after setting up a dive site a couple of kilometres outside the community, began diving on Friday.

Multi-national task force
Innocent’s Canadian contingent includes 10 combat divers. Including other Canadian and European divers, there are about 50 participants in total on site, he estimated.


“It is a joint exercise,” said Innocent. “Some countries have brought their own equipment to test up here to see how it works in the harsh Canadian climate.

“It’s a great learning opportunity for everybody to learn new skills, drills, and evolve their own skills and drills moving forward.”

Innocent said weather conditions were clear and favourable as they were setting up and beginning their dives: temperatures hovered between -20C and -29C, while the warmer water was between -1C and 1C.

Still, divers are only in the water for 10 to 15 minutes at a time – and never exceed 20 minutes unless they are using extremely specialized equipment.

Some of the divers are participating in a Defence Research and Development Canada study during the operation.

Researchers are collecting data on how human temperatures fluctuate in the cold.

Redesigned Operation Nanook gets underway in the Canadian Arctic
Op Nanook no longer a summer-only emergency response exercise

By Jim Bell

Nearly 500 Canadian Armed Forces members, along with two U.S. Navy sea-ice researchers and a 10-member team of divers from Finland, Sweden, France, Norway and Denmark, are now participating in this year’s version of Operation Nanook.

The operation, which Canada’s Department of National Defence has combined with another annual exercise called Operation Nunalivut, got underway on March 17 at two locations in Arctic Canada: Tuktoyaktuk and Resolute Bay.

The exercise, which wraps up on April 1, will also involve staff from the governments of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, federal agencies like Polar Knowledge Canada and Natural Resources Canada, and regional Inuit organizations.

“During the operation, CAF members will also cooperate with the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, the Inuvialuit Regional Corp., and other government departments and agencies to ensure the safety and security of Canada’s North,” a DND backgrounder said.

Since it began in 2007, Operation Nanook has until now been a summer-only whole-of-government exercise, done over a two-week period every August.

It’s usually conducted to help the Canadian Forces work with civilian agencies such as the RCMP and the Coast Guard on practice responses to mock civil emergencies, such as grounded cruise ships and downed aircraft.

But now, Operation Nanook has been combined with Operation Nunalivut and Operation Nunakput to become an umbrella operation covering exercises that will occur at various times throughout the year. The last standalone Operation Nunakput, which was an annual exercise done in the N.W.T., occurred in 2017.

The merger was brought about because of the difficulty of bringing together people from numerous government agencies for a brief period in the middle of each summer, DND says.

“Now, we are not limited to a strict window in August,” Lieutenant-Colonel Luc Frederic Gilbert of the Canadian Joint Operations Command said last summer in an article posted on the DND website.

At the same time, the annual exercise is taking on a more international dimension, with visiting troops from NATO allies like France, Norway and Denmark, as well as non-NATO countries like Sweden and Finland.

Ten Canadian Armed Forces combat divers, with 10 divers from Finland, Sweden, France, Norway and Denmark, have already arrived in Tuktoyaktuk, where they’re diving beneath the thick ice of the Beaufort Sea with members of the 1st Canadian Ranger patrol group.

At the same time, two members of the U.S. Office of Naval Research joined climate change researchers from the University of Washington for a project that measures sea-ice movements in the Beaufort Sea.

That’s through a scheme called the International Cooperative Engagement Program for Polar Research.

Nearly 300 troops from the Arctic Response Company Group, the Royal Canadian Regiment and other units arrived at Resolute Bay around March 21.

There, they’ve been working with 20 Canadian Rangers on Arctic survival skills and long-range patrols.

And about 30 members of the 440 Transport Squadron have been deployed from Yellowknife to provide logistical support.

Also in Resolute Bay, the Canadian Forces are testing a new gadget called the SmartQAMUTIK mobile sensor. It’s a sled-based device that’s hauled by snowmobile to measure sea-ice thickness along travel routes.

Last summer’s Operation Nanook included naval exercises off the coast of Labrador and Baffin Island.

In February 2020, the Canadian Forces are planning a joint exercise with the U.S. forces in Alaska, DND says.

About 120 Canadian Army soldiers taking part in training exercise in Chatham-Kent

Training Exercise - Page 2 Image


The Canadian Press
Published Wednesday, April 24, 2019
Don’t be alarmed if you see soldiers on the streets of Chatham-Kent this weekend.

More than 600 Canadian Army soldiers from 31 Canadian Brigade Group, headquartered in London, will be taking part in a training exercise across Southwestern Ontario from April 25 to the 28.

That includes about 120 soldiers who will be deployed in Chatham-Kent starting Friday as they operate as a Domestic Response Company at the Chatham Memorial Arena.

Residents will also see soldiers and military vehicles in the immediate area and around Chatham-Kent.

The exercise is called “Arrowhead Response”—and officials say the goal is to practice the planning and execution of domestic support operations.

Those operations occur during a crisis like a natural disaster or an industrial accident.

The exercise will involve a simulated hazardous material spill in a scenario that includes a request for assistance from a local municipality.

Overall, the exercise will include the deployment of three units in Chatham-Kent, Hanover and Woodstock, and other unit deployments including an armoured reconnaissance squadron, a combat engineer squadron, an administrative support company, a communications squadron, and a headquarters to provide command and control of deployed personnel and assets.

The exercise scenario will include a variety of training tasks and objectives, including the set-up of reception centres, establishment of command posts, and conducting patrols in the community by vehicle and foot.

All Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members will be completely unarmed, and will have no access to ammunition or pyrotechnics of any kind.

Officials say there will be opportunities for the public to interact with army personnel.

Residents are also encouraged to visit the various locations and talk to the soldiers, but use extra caution when near military vehicles.

Maple Resolve prepares soldiers for realities of modern conflict

Sunday, May. 19th, 2019

Training Exercise - Page 2 47804352232_e7a4f8c5c0_o-750x420
Members of Canadian Army conduct stability operations at 3rd Canadian Division Support Base (3 CDSB) Detachment Wainwright’s training area during Exercise Maple Resolve 2019.



Upon completing Exercise Maple Resolve 19, Canada’s next group is soldiers will be ready for deployment. From May 10 to May 24, Canadian Forces Base Wainwright is hosting the military’s largest and most complex training exercise as a proving ground for soldiers entering the modern operating environment.

For 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (1 CMBG), based in Edmonton, it’s the culmination of a year-long training program called The Road to High Readiness. Previously, soldiers completed a number of training exercises throughout the year including, Operations Unified Resolve, Virtual Ram and Ornery Ram, ahead of coming to CFB Wainwright. About 5,000 soldiers, including foreign allies, participate with the Canadian Army.

The exercise challenges and engages troops ahead of deployment on domestic and foreign operations in the approximately 680 square km. Wainwright training area. Lt.-Col. Ross Bonnell is chief of staff at the Canadian Manoeuvre Training Centre and the exercise director for Maple Resolve 19. He says the exercise features a full replication of the modern operating environment full of challenges for the soldiers.

“The brigade is going to be challenged, really, on every step on the full spectrum of operations,” says Bonnell. “They could be delivering humanitarian assistance on one day, they could transition to a fight with counter-insurgents on the next, before finally ending up on the war-fighting end of the spectrum. Really, the brigade is going to be challenged from day one, right until the end.”

On top of challenging the soldiers to meet the demands of modern operations, the exercise helps to train 1 CMBG for interoperability with allied forces. More than 900 soldiers from the U.S. Armed Forces, about 150 soldiers from the U.K. and 40 soldiers from the French Army are participating to prepare the brigade for deployment in a multi-national context.

“What we’re validating here at Maple Resolve is their ability to work with their allied partners, to understand what capabilities they bring to the table, and to really challenge that all sides are speaking the same language. So that when you have Canadian soldiers from 1 CMBG relaying a message to a soldier from the U.K. or the U.S., that they mutually understand that message.”

The soldiers enter into a simulated conflict scenario facilitated by the Weapons Effects Simulation (WES) System. This complex system offers engagement simulation similar to laser tag, with transmitters ranging from the barrel of a gun to the cannon on a tank. Each soldier’s vest and helmet features sensors to display damage from the effects of weapons they’re targeted with. This complex system also tracks the steps of each engagement in the battlespace for analysis after the exercise.

The exercise allows for a variety of interactions with the local populations. There are signs that insurgents and enemy forces are escalating their own activities, switching the focus from improving the lives of local nationals to engaging with a simulated enemy. The goal is to bring challenges on all fronts, from interactions with local nationals to facing a near-peer enemy to bring the soldiers up to speed.

“We’re trying to ramp up the tempo throughout the entirety of the exercise. There’s not a lot of sleep for the soldiers while they’re on this two-week exercise, again, replicating what they might see in the current operating environment.”

The modern information environment
Soldiers experience as close to a real-world environment as they can. The scenario comes with actors roleplaying the parts of local nationals. Villagers, journalists, religious leaders and non-governmental organizations are all part of the simulation to provide soldiers with an operational environment. A simulated media interacts with the environment and reports information.

The information ends up on a closed social media platform called “Fakebook” in order to simulate the realities of social media. The platform features back and forth discourse to simulate a real social media environment and it monitored by Capt. Bonnie Wilken. She says that high-level training exercises like Maple Resolve calls for more than physical and tactical training.

“In addition to the manoeuvre elements that are happening, the moving of tanks, LAVs, individuals and supply chains, we also train our soldiers to understand the information environment they’re working in,” says Wilken. “By having a simulated social media page, this is how we build another layer of realism on the exercise and cover that information aspect of it.”

The value of this kind of training is to help soldiers provide stability in a theatre of operations. Soldiers are privy to information available through news and social media which can then inform actions they take. One village in the exercise experienced a water crisis, with those who are considered “bad guys” selling villagers water as the local population’s only option.

With multiple clues that a crisis like this was happening, the troops could find a solution. Soldiers liaised with appropriate non-governmental organizations in the region to help provide the appropriate aid for locals. Capt. Wilken affirms that this kind of training is vital to help soldiers disseminate information ahead of taking action.

“It’s critical that our soldiers have a good understanding of the information environment, not just to understand what’s going on around them, but to ensure that what they’re doing is correct. We don’t exist on an island; we have access to everything, the internet is everywhere and it’s a whole new ball game.”

After completing the exercise, soldiers are ready for deployment. The 3rd Canadian Division is responsible for High Readiness from July 1 until June 30, 2020. Potential missions include NATO support in Latvia, training counterparts in Ukraine, missions in Poland, Iraq, or domestic support missions.
