Through it’s defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, the Government of Canada is providing the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with the facilities and equipment they need to defend Canada and contribute to a more stable and peaceful world.
Today, Mark Gerretsen, Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands, on behalf of Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan, announced that a new modular indoor live-fire training range will be installed at the Joint Task Force X (JTF X) facility located at Canadian forces Base (CFB) Kingston.
The new 25-metre indoor range will offer lane firing at fixed targets and simulated moving targets, as well as simulated operational scenarios requiring a quick response. Such exercises will assist JTF X members in maintaining proficiency in firing small arms such as 9 mm pistols.
Dymech Engineering of Greely, Ontario, was awarded two contracts of a total value of $11.8 million to install the range, and provide in-service support for an initial two-year period (with options for up to 18 years). The new range is expected to be up and running in the fall of 2019.
