HMCS Charlottetown returns from NATO exercise

RCN Public Affairs, 29 March 2024.

After 37 days at sea for Exercise Steadfast Defender, His Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Charlottetown returned home March 13.

Since departing their homeport of Halifax in January, the crew of HMCS Charlottetown participated in Exercises Joint Warrior 24 and Dynamic Guard 24, where they performed intensive anti-submarine warfare training. This included coordinating with allied forces to detect, track and respond to simulated hostile submarine threats.

They worked closely with Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom - making it the largest NATO exercise in decades.

These exercises enhance the individual skills of our sailors and foster greater cohesion among NATO allies making us collectively stronger against any threats to our way of life.
