The ship, HMCS Harry DeWolf, is the first of six Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) set to be delivered to the service over the coming years.

“Tradition reinforces operations, and events like our commissioning ceremony draw inspiration and purpose from our own recent milestones, and from all of those that contributed to the National Shipbuilding Strategy.

This ceremony is about all of us celebrating our contributions in a formal setting,” said Cdr Corey Gleason, HMCS Harry DeWolf’s first commanding officer.
