Canada will provide the United Nations with tactical airlift support out of Entebbe, in Uganda, during the next 12 months, beginning as early as August 2019.

The Tactical Airlift Detachment will consist of a Royal Canadian Air Force CC-130J Hercules aircraft, operated and supported by up to 25 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members. It will deploy for up to five days each month to assist with transporting troops, equipment and supplies to the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) and the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
