The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have wrapped up the 2018 edition of Operation CARIBBE and successfully disrupted the trafficking

of approximately 17,000 kg of narcotics. Working collaboratively with the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and US-Led Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATF-S) over the past year, the CAF directly supported the ongoing multinational campaign to disrupt illicit drug trafficking.

The latest deployment concludes today. For the fall iteration of Operation CARIBBE, Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships (HMCS) Edmonton, Nanaimo, and Moncton, along with CP-140 Aurora Long Range Patrol aircraft deployed to regions in the eastern Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea, helping to keep narcotics off the streets of North America, and contributing to regional security.
