Over 1,000 Canadian sailors, soldiers, and aviators are set to participate in Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC). The world’s largest international maritime exercise takes place June 27 to Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California.
During RIMPAC, forces will exercise a wide range of capabilities from disaster relief to maritime security operations and complex warfighting.
Canada, along with Australia and the United States, has participated in every RIMPAC exercise since its inception in 1971. The continued participation of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) reinforces Canada’s commitment to enhancing partnerships and security in the Asia-Pacific region.
