“O” Division Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has participated in the ‘Toys for the North’ charitable drive since 2010 in partnership with the Canadian Toy Association and Thomson Terminals transportation. This initiative has evolved over the years to include a national network of RCMP, law enforcement, corporate and external partners who collectively contribute to the success of delivering new toys to children in our Northern communities. Members of 8 Wing Trenton, 2 Air Movements Squadron and 436 Transport Squadron are helping get the toys to Thunder Bay, Ontario and Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador during CC-130J Hercules training flights this December.
