Military Exercises Coming to Island 22

April 24, 2017

The Canadian Military will be conducting training exercises throughout the Fraser Valley between April 24 and May 12. Visitors to Island 22 may notice military personnel, vehicles, and equipment in the regional park during this time period. All facilities, including the boat launch, dog park, bike skills park, and equestrian areas will remain open to the public during this time.

The purpose of this training is to develop the mobility and engineering skills required to support a domestic operation in the event of an environmental disaster.

With this exercise, there may be an increase in noise in the surrounding areas, particularly near docks and provincial parks. There will be no live ammunition used in this exercise.

For more information about these military exercises, please contact Captain Soo Choi at 780-907-0610.
