HMCS Calgary begins rotation on Op ARTEMIS

On April 15, 2021, HMCS Calgary began its participation in Op ARTEMIS, where it is working with Combined Task Force (CTF) 150 to combat smuggling operations that primarily fund terrorist activity. CTF 150 has been under the command of the RCN’s Commodore Dan Charlebois since January 27.

Before chopping into ARTEMIS, Calgary participated in a cooperative deployment with Her Majesty’s Australian Ships Anzac and Sirius, as well as the Japanese Ship Akebono, on April 8 and 9 while on Op PROJECTION.

“It was great working with the Royal Australian Navy and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force,” said Commander (Cdr) Mark O’Donohue, Calgary’s Commanding Officer.

“Cooperative deployments like this bolster partnerships and improve interoperability.” Serials conducted focused on electronic warfare, manoeuvring, helicopter and communications exercises, and a replenishment-at-sea.
