2019 Arctic operations for the Canadian Coast Guard complete
“Every year, the dedicated, experienced women and men of the Canadian Coast Guard work to provide critical services to the North. Our Government is committed to continuing to work with Indigenous communities and other partners in the Arctic to keep mariners safe, to protect our coasts and waters, to support the livelihood of northern communities, and to keep our economy moving.”
The Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard
Coast Guard icebreakers participated in 13 community visits, including Grise Fiord, Arctic Bay, and Cambridge Bay, NU.
For the fourth year in a row, the CCGS Sir Wilfrid Laurier delivered over 100 bicycles and helmets to Cambridge Bay, NU, in partnership with the Polar Bike Project.
Community boats were delivered to Cambridge Bay and Gjoa Haven, NU, and and Tuktoyaktuk, NWT, to enable the local community to be better positioned to respond to SAR incidents off their coastlines.
Under search and rescue programs, the Arctic Community Engagement and Exercise Team (ACEET) visited 22 communities to engage with the Coast Guard Auxiliary, and to discuss the introduction of the Auxiliary program in communities without one.
