Operation NANOOK 2021

Dr. Ann Griffiths, 5 August 2021

On 3 August, two US Coast Guard ships, plus HMCS Goose Bay and HMCS Harry DeWolf set sail from Halifax. From 3 August to 12 September 2021, approximately 250 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel will take part in Operation (Op) Nanook 2021, which will be conducted in several communities along the Northwest Passage and the Davis Strait. Goose Bay and Harry DeWolf will conduct maritime presence patrols and reconnaissance, as well as rehearse maritime response practices and procedures alongside partners from the Canadian Coast Guard, and the US Coast Guard. This deployment marks the first time HMCS Harry DeWolf, the first Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship, has participated in Op Nanook and marks the beginning of its four-and-a-half month circumnavigation of North America, including a transit through the Northwest Passage. Read more: https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/news/2021/08/operation-nanook-2021-activities-begin-in-canadas-arctic-region.html
