Canada takes Command of Combined Task Force 150

On Wednesday, Canada assumed command of Combined Task Force 150 from France at a ceremony in Bahrain.

The task force conducts maritime security operations and capacity building in the Gulf of Oman and North Arabian Sea.

It is one of five Combined Task Forces, each with its own area of operations or focus, operated by Combined Maritime Forces, the world’s largest multinational maritime partnership.

Captain (Navy) Collin Matthews of the Royal Canadian Navy has assumed command of the multinational collation.

It works to counter illicit actors on the high seas and promote security and stability across the Middle East and the Horn of Africa.

There are approximately 25 CAF personnel working on the CMF task forces.
