HMCS Winnipeg Gets Ready for Deployment
Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Winnipeg is preparing to deploy overseas to join NATO forces in the Mediterranean Sea, as part of Operation Reassurance, Canada’s measures to promote security and stability in Central and Eastern Europe in light of the Putin regime’s aggression against Ukraine.
En route for Operation REASSURANCE, HMCS Winnipeg will participate on Operation CARIBBE for approximately three weeks. Operation CARIBBE is Canada’s participation in the multinational campaign against illicit trafficking by transnational organized crime in the Caribbean sea and the eastern Pacific Ocean.
The ship is expected to set sail in the coming weeks and will replace HMCS Fredericton, which has been part of Standing NATO Maritime Forces since January 2015.
