Many military vehicles will be seen travelling to Wainwright from Edmonton at the start of April. From April 1-6, about 600 military vehicles from Canadian Forces Base Edmonton will be travelling to Wainwright in preparation for large scale military training exercises.
Military vehicles will be travelling east along Anthony Henday Drive, east on the Yellowhead Trail to Highway 36. From there they’ll travel south along Highway 36 to Highway 14, then east along Highway 14 to 3rd Canadian Division Forces Base Edmonton Detachment Wainwright. The public should expect to see a high volume of military vehicles along this route between 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily.
The training being conducted at Detachment Wainwright will ensure 3rd Canadian Division soldiers are fully trained and certified by the appropriate Canadian Army authorities. It will also ensure soldiers are ready for deployments on international operations from July 1 of this year to August 31, 2020, in support of Canada’s foreign and defence policy objectives.
