Operation Nunalivut concludes in High Arctic


Canada Department of National Defence, April 23, 2015 - Operation Nunalivut 2015, one of Joint Task Force (North’s) premier High Arctic operations, concluded yesterday after nearly a month of activity in and around the Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, area.

Operation Nunalivut 15 highlighted Canada’s ability to respond to threats in the north, bringing together members of 1 Canadian Ranger Patrol Group; 3rd Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry; and the Royal Canadian Air Force to conduct sovereignty patrols.

The operation also included joint ice-diving operations by Royal Canadian Navy divers and Parks Canada underwater archeologists beneath the Arctic ice in the vicinity of Victoria Strait, Nunavut. The ice-diving operations were part of an effort to learn more about the fate of Her Majesty’s Ship Erebus, one of two ill-fated Franklin Expedition ships lost in 1846.

Commanded by Joint Task Force (North), Operation Nunalivut 2015 ran from April 1 to 22, 2015, and involved more than 200 personnel deploying from across Canada.

A temporary camp was built near the site of the North Warning System (NWS) Cambridge Bay site to provide accommodations for military personnel making up the operations and support component of Operation Nunalivut 15. To build the camp, 45 tonnes of equipment had to be shipped north from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and other locations further south.

Operation Nunalivut is a sovereignty operation conducted annually since 2007 in Canada’s North, providing an opportunity for the Canadian Armed Forces to assert Canada’s sovereignty over its northernmost regions, to demonstrate the ability to operate in the harsh winter environment in remote areas of the High Arctic, and to enhance the Forces’ capability to respond to any situation in Canada’s North.
