The Canadian Army’s North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment advises residents of Bathurst that Exercise RAPID RESPONSE 2022 will bring Canadian and Polish soldiers together for winter training in the Bathurst area from March 7-11.
During the five days of training, residents can expect increased military vehicle traffic on the roads and increased snowmobile traffic along the region’s trail systems. This activity should not affect normal traffic, according to Captain Ian McIntyre of 37 Canadian Brigade Group.
During Exercise RAPID RESPONSE 2022, soldiers from both countries will provide specialized training unique to northern operations. This allows Canadian Army units to confirm their ability to effectively conduct operations under adverse conditions.
Longtime allies, the armed forces of Canada and Poland have cooperated over the years in joint training activities. Each year, Polish troops train alongside Canadian soldiers in winter conditions and Canadian troops continue to participate in NATO exercises held on Polish territory.
