HMCS CHA Steadfast Defender Feb24

HMCS Charlottetown went on exercise Steadfast Defender 2024

RCN Public Affairs, 27 February 2024.

HMCS Charlottetown departed on January 31 to participate in Exercise Steadfast Defender until March 31.

Approximately 1,000 sailors, soldiers, and aviators from across Canada will participate in both sea and land components of the exercise, making it the largest NATO exercise in decades.

Charlottetown, with an embarked Royal Canadian Air Force CH-148 Cyclone helicopter will participate with the enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia, and elements of the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command.

The RCN’s participation in this large multi-national exercise increases Canada’s long-term security. When we work together with partners we better ensure our common ability to respond to threats to our way of life.
