The Canadian International Council‘s (CIC) Calgary branch is pleased to host LCol K.R. Grimsrud at The Military Museums for a discussion on Canadian military operations in support of the alliance.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has been more prevalent in Canadian news headlines in recent years. Canada has a role in this multilateral organization on numerous diplomatic and military fronts. This presentation will focus on military operations in Latvia and Iraq, and will touch on work in Europe as part of the effort to support Ukraine’s war efforts against the Russian invasion.

The CIC’s Calgary branch would like to acknowledge the NATO Association of Canada (NAOC) for its support in promoting this event as part of the 75th Anniversary year of NATO’s establishment in 1949.

LCol Grimsrud was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and has held numerous roles with 1 Combat Engineer Regiment (CER) in Edmonton where he is currently Commanding Officer, and had previous postings with Canadian Expeditionary Forces Command in Ottawa, 4 Engineer Support Regiment and Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering in New Brunswick, where he earned a Commander of the Canadian Army Commendation. He was also previously posted to the United States Central Command Headquarters as embedded Strategic War Planner.

He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Industrial Systems Engineering from University of Regina, a Master of Arts in Military Operations from the US Army Command and General Staff College, and a MBA from Webster University.
