Abstract
Over the past decade, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have increased their training and Arctic sovereignty patrols in the Canadian Arctic. Since 2016 DRDC Toronto has been actively conducting research tracking medical events and injuries (freezing and non-freezing) that occur during Arctic exercises and investigating the CAF’s readiness from a medical standpoint to identify gaps and mitigate these medical incidents. A variety of data, including medical event data, interviews, surveys, physiological and clothing and footwear micro-climate thermal data were collected on six exercises from 2016-2018. The purpose of this report is to update the client on interim results of this project.
