HMC Ships Ville de Québec and Halifax participate in JOINT WARRIOR

RCN Public Affairs, 15 October 2020.

HMC Ships Ville de Québec and Halifax departed from Halifax on September 20 to join HMCS Toronto, SNMG1 and the Royal Navy off the coast of Scotland to participate in in JOINT WARRIOR, a major bi-annual multinational cooperative deployment led by the United Kingdom.

The ships were required to return to port on September 22 in order to avoid extreme weather caused by Hurricane Teddy. After the storm passed, the ships resumed their passage.

Beginning on October 3, JOINT WARRIOR is designed to provide a complex environment in which participants can hone tactics and specialist skills within a war-style setting and to prepare for deployment as a Joint Task Force.
