Officials say people may see Canadian Army soldiers in uniform with their service weapons, and military vehicles on local roads and highways.  

They also say the training does not involve any ammunition of any kind. 

“This important exercise also prepares Canadian Army Reserve members to operate in various weather conditions and maintain fitness and stamina while carrying their equipment,” states a release. “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.”  

Officials add measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience during the exercise dates, with the public asked to use extra caution when approaching military vehicles.
