Through Canada’s defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, the government of Canada committed to prioritizing joint intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). This is essential to provide Canada with a clear picture of Canadian air and maritime approaches, monitor the Arctic, and enable CAF missions, ensuring that Canada is strong at home, secure in North America and engaged in the world.
The Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School (CFLRS) today inaugurated the first permanent Canadian Armed Forces Indigenous Spiritual Lodge.

As stated in Canada’s defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, the Government of Canada is delivering the capability the Royal Canadian Navy needs to meet future defence and security challenges and carry out the tasks required of a modern navy. Good weather or bad, our frigates need modern equipment to act as our eyes to safeguard Canadian waters and to participate in international operations.
