Project Description:
NOREX GUERRIER NORDIQUE 2019 (NOREX GN 19) is the annual validation northern exercise conducted by Quebec area’s 2 Canadian Division (2 Cdn Div) to confirm the operational capacities of its Arctic Response Company Group (ARCG). NOREX GN 19 is conducted annually during the months of February and March and normally includes the following four phases: 1) Phase 1 - Vanguard activities; 2) Phase 2 - Deployment of the 2 Cdn Div Immediate Response Unit (IRU) vanguard company; 3) Phase 3 - Relieve in place with the 2 Cdn Div ARCG and its training followed by 4) Phase 4 - Rear guard activities to close the NOREX GN 19. NOREX GN 19 will be conducted with patrols on the land and on sea ice. It will consist of approximately two hundred (200) personnel and will include an international training event involving the participation of up to sixteen (16) members of US Army National Guard from Vermont. This year, US participation may also include US Air Force 109 Airlift Wing with One (1) LC-130 Hercules on skis. This year, NOREX GN 19 will be held from February 18 to March 15, 2019 in the vicinity of Resolute, Nunavut and will be based on a domestic operation scenario. The main scenario will include platoon (30 personnel) to company (120 personnel) level training featuring long range ground patrols, search and recuperation missions, ground search and rescue (SAR) scenarios and survival techniques in an high arctic environment. Possible areas to be included in the exercise scenarios will cover part of Cornwallis Island, Little Cornwallis Island and Devon Island. For the purpose of supporting NOREX GN 19, a land component command post and a logistic element will be established at the Canadian Armed Forces Arctic Training Center (CAFATC) in Resolute for the entire duration of the training. Air support for the exercise will be provided by a mix of civilian aircrafts (Twin Otter) and a helicopter. Military cargo aircrafts will also operate from Resolute airport.

 Good afternoon Goump, my name is Julia Provodina and I work with Sarah Rahmer. Sarah is currently away. I was the one calling you last week and leaving you a voice mail. I was working off-site on Friday and received your voice mail only today, Monday, November 26, 2018. I made several attempts to reach you at the phone number you provided (867-979-3444) but was unsuccessful. With regard to your request to complete the information on all authorizing agencies NOREX GN 19 would require an authorization, license or permit from, we do not anticipate requiring any permits or licenses as part of this training exercise.
