HMCS Halifax to join HMCS Montréal on Op Reassurance

RCN Public Affairs, 22 March 2022

As announced by Defence Minister Anita Anand, HMCS Halifax and an embarked maritime helicopter will be re-tasked and soon join HMCS Montréal on Operation Reassurance. This change-of-mission for Halifax is part of the Government of Canada’s additional military support to NATO operations in Central and Eastern Europe in the face of Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

Halifax is scheduled to join NATO’s Standing Naval Forces after arrival in the region. Montréal, which departed Halifax on 19 January 2022, has already entered into Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 in the Mediterranean Sea.
