Icebreaking near Iqaluit, Nunavut

From: Canadian Coast Guard

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories – The Canadian Coast Guard Ship Terry Fox is escorting the MT KITIKMEOT W into Iqaluit, Nunavut on or around 26 June, 2020, as part of annual sealift operations.

It is strongly recommended that all traffic on the ice, including pedestrians, hunters, snowmobilers, and all-terrain vehicle (ATV) operators, avoid the area during icebreaking operations. The ice may move, creating a real danger for anyone on it. Additionally, please plan activities carefully and use extreme caution after operations are complete as the ice will remain unstable even once the icebreaker has left the area.

The date and assets are subject to change with no notice, as activities can change, depending on operational requirements or weather conditions.
