Members of the Canadian Army are training from November 25-26, 2023, in Prince Edward County.
The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment will conduct infantry training near Ameliasburgh, Ontario on private property under an official Land Use Agreement.
Blank ammunition will be used for this training, but there will be no live munitions of any kind present.
Members of the public may see Canadian Army members in uniform with their service weapons and military vehicles on local roads and highways.
This training is practice for later activities at Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) bases and ranges, and allows the unit and personnel to confirm their skills locally before firing live ammunition at approved training facilities.
This important exercise supports year-round readiness training and prepares local Army Reserve members to support CAF missions around the world.
All Canadian Army Reserve members train regularly in order to maintain and further develop their skills in safe and effective operations, and to test discipline, safety, and effectiveness.
All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience in these areas during the exercise dates, and members of the public are asked to take extra caution when approaching military vehicles and are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation
