Canadian Army Exercises in Peterborough, Belleville, and Cobourg this Weekend

In Upcoming Events

Local Canadian Army Reserve members from the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment will conduct training in Peterborough, Belleville, and Cobourg this Saturday November 4, 2023.

Soldiers will march along local roadsides in uniform with their personal weapons, which will remain unloaded at all times. They will wear Canadian Army-issued uniforms and personal protective equipment.

Members of the public can expect to see upwards of 30 soldiers at a time, marching along the roads in various formations. We ask that members of the public slow down when passing these marching soldiers.

This important exercise is being conducted in order to prepare Canadian Army Reserve members to operate in various weather conditions, and maintain fitness and stamina while carrying their equipment. This type of regular, scheduled training keeps our soldiers and units ready to respond to missions in Canada like floods and wildfires, and support international stability operations with partners and allies.

All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience to those in the area, and members of the public are asked to take extra caution when approaching military vehicles and personnel. Local residents are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation.
