Canadian forces and the US Army are planning to hold major winter war games near Gogama in Ontario, Canada, to enable Canadian forces to operate in extreme northern conditions.

The exercise is part of the federal government’s commitment to maintain Canadian sovereignty in the high Arctic and will be held from 7-23 March 2011 with participation from 365 soldiers.

Canadian Rangers, US National Guard units and officer cadets from the Royal Military College in Kingston will take part in the training.

The exercise will include winter survival, outdoor tactical training, moving soldiers and equipment in severe conditions, setting up defences in snow and ice conditions as well as treating injuries from cold weather operations.

Apart from warfare training for soldiers, the exercise will also involve training in areas such as logistics, support, transportation and medical needs, according to Global Research.
