Our presenter, Lieutenant Colonel Hope Carr, headed the deployment a new Canadian Training Assistance Team (CTAT) to Ghana. The CTAT team consists of a gender-balanced task force of four CAF members currently deployed on Operation PRESENCE (Elsie) and will contribute to Ghana’s ongoing efforts to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in United Nations Peace Operations. The Task Force recently completed its initial engagements and is now
working closely with the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) on a Garrison Tour of all GAF units across the country, intended to enhance understanding of gender issues and gender barriers impacting GAF. Upon completion of this first deployment, the assessments of the Task Force Commander will drive the composition, frequency and activities of future CTAT deployments commencing
As bilateral partners in the Elsie Initiative since 2018, Canada and Ghana share best practices, and together develop and test innovative approaches to increase women’s meaningful participation in uniformed military roles in UN peace operations. The ongoing deployment of the task force is part of Canada’s commitment to support the GAF under this partnership.
Lieutenant Colonel Carr will provide a presentation on the activities of the CTAT and the associated activities leading to the deployment.
