Doesn't JTF-N have a permanent presence in White Horse and yellow knife? Perhaps expanding white horse and have a single battle regularly rotate in and out of there.
I spent a summer in Whitehorse on while waiting for courses; the 'permanent presence' is used as an Army Cadet camp in the summer and the Rangers use it the rest of the time. It apparently used to be some kind of monitoring post but was basically a collection of wood cabins around a parade square about half an hour outside town IIRC. That was about 15 years ago now (holy crap!) but believe it's still the same. There is some kind of presence in Yellowknife, which I understand includes some planes and similar under 440 sqn.
