wo Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) ships will visit communities along the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes this summer as part of the annual Great Lakes Deployment.

Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships (HMCS) Moncton and Oriole are this year’s RCN ambassadors for the annual deployment which connects Canadians to their Navy.

“Great Lakes Deployment 2018, is an excellent opportunity for thousands of Canadians throughout eastern Canada, Quebec, and Ontario to visit their Navy. I think that Canadians will be impressed with our ships but more importantly, pleased and proud of our incredible sailors who serve Canada at sea. Welcome aboard, and don't be shy to ask our sailors about how they are making a difference globally, in support of Canada and our interests," said Vice Admiral Ron Lloyd, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy.

The navy has held a historic and strategically important presence in Halifax since the founding of the Royal Naval Dockyard by the British in the mid-18th century. The city would later become home to Her Majesty’s Canadian Dockyard, the hub of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Atlantic Fleet.

As Halifax grew from a small military garrison to a thriving centre of Maritime prosperity, the military has also become one of Halifax’s largest employers.

Today, Maritime Forces Atlantic is a key contributor to marine security through its strategic location in Halifax, astride the major trading routes to and from Europe, the United States, South America, and all points of the globe for that matter.

Enabling the readiness of the navy’s surface and submarine forces are the approximately 10,700 trained and experienced military and civilian personnel who form the Maritime Forces Atlantic defence team. 

“Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships Oriole and Moncton will be great ambassadors on behalf of the Royal Canadian Navy this summer as they visit Canadian port cities throughout the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway. Their visit also provides an excellent opportunity to recognize the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Cadet Organizations and the rich history of service they have provided and continue to provide in our communities," said Rear Admiral Craig Baines, Commander of Maritime Forces Atlantic.

Further complementing the Formation’s efforts is the exceptional support of community and government partners, who help to ensure that the Royal Canadian Navy will forever be a strong thread that is woven into the social fabric of our maritime and regional experience.

No matter the challenge, Canadians can rest assured that their navy is ‘Ready, Aye, Ready’ to meet changing demands, emergency situations, and evolving threats to our sovereignty and security.
