International Information

International Operation Name: HUMBLE

International Mission Name: HUMBLE

Mandating Organization: Government of Canada

Region Name: Central America

Location: Haiti

Mission Date: 24 May 2001 - 31 May 2001

Mission Mandate: To evaluate and effect repairs on 14 DFAIT generators at the Port-au-Prince Mission.

Mission/Operation Notes:

In early May 2001, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) made a request to DND under the DND Artisan Support to DFAIT Administrative Agreement, to have military technicians come to the Embassy in Port-au-Prince Haiti, and evaluate 14 emergency generators installed on mission grounds.

DND responded by sending a two man Specialist Engineering Team (SET), via commercial air from Trenton Ontario, to Haiti. Their mission was to provide a report with recommendations to DFAIT, through J3 Engineering, regarding the state of the generators and how best to affect repairs. Repairs were only to be undertaken if they were within the capability of the engineers. Any additional repairs were be approved by the DCDS prior to completion. The report was to be submitted to J3 a week after their return.

The team flew down towards the end of May and were housed and shepherded around by DFAIT personnel. The operation came to a close upon the team’s return on 31 May 2001 with their recommendations.
