21 Aerospace Control and Warning Squadron

21 Aerospace Control and Warning Squadron

21 Aerospace Control & Warning Squadron is a Canadian Forces Unit based at CFB North Bay. The Squadron was activated at St. Margaret's, New Brunswick, Canada in 1953 with the signing of the Pinetree Agreement. In 1963 it became part of the Semi-Automated Ground Environment system, and became North Bay’s Alternate Command Post and Automated Back-up Interceptor Control Unit. In 1988 the unit was disbanded and reformed in North Bay. Today, it is the operational unit performing the Canadian Air Defence section mission.

With its complement of 185 personnel, "21 Aerospace Control and Warning Squadron" maintains air sovereignty over Canadian airspace, monitors Canada's surveillance assets and controls assigned Aircraft. It coordinates with outside agencies to identify air traffic (over 200,000 flights a year), provides control of special air sovereignty incidents, assist law enforcement agencies with cases of suspected smuggling of illegal drugs via air into North America and supports international defense and peacekeeping commitments.
