1:45 PM Improving Royal Canadian Navy Efforts in the Arctic

The Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) contends with a significant Arctic area of responsibility, an area larger than that of western and central Europe and with minimal logistic infrastructure. The changing environment is opening the area to new interests and, with it, new challenges. This session will focus on the RCN’s efforts to enhance its capabilities and ability to operate in this domain, while working with like-minded partners such as U.S. Second Fleet to enhance collective domain awareness and interoperability.
·         Understanding the role of the RCN in the Arctic
·         Areas of investment to enable access and operations
·         U.S. Second Fleet’s focus on the Arctic and High North
