HMCS Ville de Québec, Glace Bay and MV Asterix participate in Op NANOOK-TUUGAALIK 2020

RCN Public Affairs, 24 September 2020.

HMC Ships Ville de Québec and Glace Bay and MV Asterix were in the Arctic region participating in Operation NANOOK-TUUGAALIK 2020 in August.

The ships and crews conducted sea trials, helicopter serials and boarding scenarios with Her Danish Majesty’s Ship Triton, the United States Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma, and the United States Ship Thomas Hudner. The ships also traversed the Arctic Circle and performed the traditional Crossing the Line ceremony on August 17.

The operation to exercise Canada’s sovereignty over its northernmost regions takes place each year and involves Indigenous, federal, provincial and territorial governments, along with Northern partners.
