LTC Kristopher Reeves, Commander of Canada’s Armed Forces Training Mission in Ukraine Operation UNIFIER.

Operation UNIFIER is the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) mission to support Armed Forces of Ukraine in Ukraine. The operation’s focus is to assist them with military training. This will help them improve and build their military capacity. The CAF coordinates its training with training by the U.S. and other countries that help in the same way. Military training is one part of Canada’s overall support to Ukraine.

The CAF launched Operation UNIFIER in response to requests from the Government of Ukraine. Global Affairs Canada also provides support. The intent is to help Ukraine remain sovereign, secure, and stable.

The training mission falls under a Multinational Joint Commission. This commission includes Canada, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States. Canada became a member in January 2015. It co-chairs the Sub-Committee on Military Policing with Ukraine.

As of March 1, 2018, the CAF Joint Task Force-Ukraine (JTF-U) has trained more than 6200 Ukrainian soldiers. There have been 129 course serials that covered all types of training.
