Welcome back to Defence Team News. I’m Lt(N) Jamie Bresolin.

And I’m Shelley Van Hoof. Here are the headlines at Defence.

Approximately 235 members from 4th Canadian Division recently concluded Northern Exercise 2018 in and around Resolute, Nunavut.

This year’s exercise was aimed at maintaining an Arctic response capability to ensure Canadian Army personnel have the ability to move, communicate, and command under harsh weather conditions in remote locations.

During the exercise, Canadian Army personnel conducted first response scenarios, allowing soldiers to hone their skills in survivability, mobility, and sustainability working alongside Canadian Rangers from the 1st Canadian Ranger Patrol Group.

Exercises like this fulfill an important pillar of Canada’s Defence Policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, ensuring that CAF training and equipment meets the high-quality technical requirements modern militaries need to succeed.

Exercise ROGUISH BUOY 2018 wrapped up this month at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown near Lake George, New Brunswick.

Hosted by the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering, this annual training event prepares dive teams to expertly and safely carry out operational tasks.

This year, Canadian Army divers, alongside NATO partner nations from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, carried out several tests and challenges in vehicle recovery, search and rescue, and underwater demolition.

That’s it for us. Thank you so much for watching. See you next time…
