440 Transport Squadron

440 Transport Squadron Badge

The mission of 440 “Vampire” Transport Squadron is to conduct operations in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

440 Squadron’s tasks include airlift, utility and liaison flights in support of Joint Task Force (North), the Canadian Rangers, other Canadian Forces activities and the Cadets in the North. Like all Air Force flying squadrons, 440 Squadron can conduct search and rescue missions as a secondary search and rescue resource, but has no dedicated search and rescue capability.

440 Squadron operates four of the famous Canadian-designed and -produced CC-138 Twin Otters to carry out its wide range of tasks. The Squadron operates these rugged aircraft in some of the harshest weather conditions on the planet and is the only formed Canadian Armed Forces unit that is based full-time in the North.

The C Company (The Yellowknife Company)

C Company (The Yellowknife Company) Badge

Land Force Western Area tasked stand up and ongoing administration of the new C Coy (The Yellowknife Company) to 41 Canadian Brigade Group, the primary army reserve formation in Alberta. In September 2008 the Acting Chief of Land Staff directed Land Force Western Area to implement a new Government of Canada direction to create an Army Reserve Company in Yellowknife, NWT.

The Yellowknife Infantry Company is an important element of Land Force Arctic Strategy, and represents the first army reserve unit to be manned and stationed north of 60. The company will focus its training in order to operate in the harsh Arctic environment of northern Canada and in support of other CAF formations, units and federal departments.
