Actually I just found more about it online.  Google is great.  It looks like Ex Trident Juncture 18, a huge NATO EX.

Yes

I am responding to a Report to Mod.
Try expand your answers a bit. It's obvious the poster was starting a conversation regarding the subject. Your post provided absolutely no value whatsoever. Don't make people pull teeth. Of course, you were just answering his question in the strict sense it was asked, but while you got your satisfaction at your little jest, it did nothing to further the subject or clear anything up. Except that you know something someone else doesn't, but won't share.

Please refrain from posts that don't add anything to the thread.

Are reservists deployed ( voluntarily ) for the whole duration of the exercise?

I've yet to see any official word that the CAF is participating, or what elements/units are going.  If you're interested, your unit might know if there are any CFTPO tasking for the ex.

From what I know, most of the LTF are coming from 5 Bde.  There may be reservists in the ORBAT, but I do not know.

Awesome. Weather-wise, that is absolutely the worst time of year to be in Norway.

Numbers for Narvik, for example https://en.climate-data.org/location/6656/

It can go from torrential downpours to sleet and snow in the blink of an (hypothermic) eye ;)
