Military training in the Porcupine Hills

About 40 students and instructors from the 20th Independent Field Battery will conduct an exercise Jan. 22-24 in the Beaver Creek area of the Porcupine Hills.
The students will practice navigation skills, checkpoints and cold weather indoctrination.
These skills are necessary for members of the Canadian Armed Forces to prepare for operations both domestically and abroad in a wide range of tasks from fighting in war to humanitarian assistance.
Students will navigate throughout the south Porcupine Hills area centered on the Beaver Creek area to practice their skills in navigating and surviving in a winter environment.
All military participants will be dressed in uniform and will travel in standard green military pattern vehicles, with Canadian licence plates.
The training is expected to have minimal impact on the community.
