The Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN) Great Lakes Deployment (GLD) 2022 will soon be underway with planned visits to communities along the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes, with Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships (HMCS) Oriole (May 14 to August 31) and Glace Bay (June 24 to July 29) being this year’s GLD ambassadors.

GLD provides Canadians with a unique opportunity to tour one of Canada’s naval ships and to learn about life in the RCN from our sailors. Canadians will be encouraged to stop by, say hello, and speak to our sailors about their experiences on domestic and international operations.

It also provides a learning opportunity about the different trades available in the RCN and hear stories and anecdotes directly from sailors who have chosen the challenge of a career at sea.

If you want to learn more about the Navy, come and see for yourself this summer.

All Great Lakes Deployment activities will strictly follow COVID-19 protocols and public health guidelines.

Canada – Royal Canadian Navy Commemorates 77th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic

Today, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will commemorate the 77th anniversary of the end of action in the Battle of the Atlantic and the sacrifices of the thousands of Canadians who fought valiantly from 1939-1945 during the longest campaign of the Second World War.

May 1, 2022 – Ottawa – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Today, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will commemorate the 77th anniversary of the end of action in the Battle of the Atlantic and the sacrifices of the thousands of Canadians who fought valiantly from 1939-1945 during the longest campaign of the Second World War.

Local ceremonies and commemorative events will be held in communities across the country.

Each year on the first Sunday in May, Canada and its naval community commemorate the people who perished at sea during the Battle of the Atlantic, the longest campaign of the Second World War.

“The Battle of the Atlantic – cold, wet, dangerous. Fought with courage, dedication and honour. Our world today – who they were then, and who we are now is forever connected by their sacrifice.”

Vice-Admiral Craig Baines, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy

The Battle of the Atlantic began on September 3, 1939, with the sinking of the SS Athenia by German submarine U-30. Allied forces fought for control of the North Atlantic Ocean to supply the war effort from 1939 to 1945, making this the longest campaign of the Second World War.

The RCN grew from a mere 6 destroyers & 3,500 personnel in 1939, to 373 fighting ships and more than 100,000 sailors by War’s end – one of the largest navies in the world.

Our sailors and airmen sank or shared in the destruction of some 50 U-boats while they escorted some 25 thousand merchant ships during the war to deliver more than 165 million tonnes of life & war-sustaining cargo to Europe in a merchant navy that became the world’s fourth largest.

These accomplishments were fueled by an impressive shipbuilding effort that saw more than 400 merchant ships built in Canadian shipyards that also churned-out 281 destroyers/corvettes & frigates, 206 minesweepers, over 250 tugs and over 3,000 landing craft.

In 1943, Rear-Admiral Leonard Murray was put in charge of the Allied Air and Naval forces in the Northwest Atlantic; the only Canadian to command an Allied theatre of conflict in either World War.

Throughout the Battle of the Atlantic, 24 Canadian of the 175 Allied warships were lost. 2,600 merchant ships including 62 Canadian vessels also met the same fate

The human cost: more than 2,700 RCN/RCAF and 1,600 Canadian Merchant Navy personnel died.

Just weeks before the end of hostilities, HMCS Esquimalt was sunk and 44 died in the Halifax approaches, in April 1945. 

Almost 7,000 women served their country in a wide variety of crucial roles during the War.

Canada – Royal Canadian Navy ships return from Africa

Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships (HMCS) Goose Bay and Moncton returned to their homeport of Halifax today after a four-month deployment to western Africa on Operation PROJECTION, in support of security and stability in the region.

April 15, 2022 – Halifax, N.S. – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships (HMCS) Goose Bay and Moncton returned to their homeport of Halifax today after a four-month deployment to western Africa on Operation PROJECTION, in support of security and stability in the region.

Since departing Canada on January 19, 2022, HMC Ships Goose Bay and Moncton completed a number of successful port visits, which included strategic engagements with allies and regional partners to exchange knowledge and expertise, and strengthen relationships in maritime security.

Led by U.S. Naval Forces Africa, the ships, along with a detachment from the Canadian Armed Forces Naval Tactical Operations Group and a Maritime Operations Centre mentorship team, also participated in Exercise OBANGAME EXPRESS 2022 from March 12 to 17 in the Gulf of Guinea region. These efforts further strengthen relationships with African nations and our allies, positioning the Canadian Armed Forces as leaders, at home and abroad.

“Operation PROJECTION (West Africa) 2022 marks the first time in three years that our ships have been able to support the mission to the extent that they have. I am incredibly proud of our sailors for their success on this deployment – shedding a positive light on Canada from afar. They’ve helped to make a difference not only in the realm of maritime security, but also to the lives of many on the ground through their community engagement efforts. I wish the ships’ companies a warm welcome home. Bravo Zulu for what I know has been a most memorable and rewarding experience.”

Rear-Admiral Brian Santarpia, Commander Maritime Forces Atlantic
