Laminated translation cards

Buying translation cards troops can point at when they don't know the language of the locals they're dealing with.

Canadian Forces personnel involved in operations must communicate with and understand those who speak a different language.

Kwikpoint is the sole manufacturer of the Visual Language Translator series of products for military, law enforcement and civilian use.

Training CF naval small arms trainers:
Quote
.... Vendor Name and Address:
M&P Tactical Operational Support Services, Inc.
3 Garrison Drive
Kemptville Ontario
Canada
K0G1J0

(....)

1.1 Purpose
Contractor to provide a 10 day course for approximately 8-12 Canadian Forces (CF) staff to improve their ability to provide tactical training of small arms to Force Protection, Naval Boarding Party (NBP) and all Navy personnel. This training will increase the CF staff's ability to survive a high risk confrontation. The instruction must be at such a level that on completion of training the instructors will be able to conduct enhanced small arms training to other Canadian Forces personnel (Train the Trainer).

    1.2 Background
Canadian Forces Fleet School Esquimalt (CFFS-E) Sea Div delivers small arms training/maintenance for NBP, Force Protection, Regular and Reserve Naval Environmental Training Program (NETP) and all Qualification Level courses for Boatswain's (the small arms custodians in the Navy). NBP and Force Protection (FP) training covers all trades/occupations within the Navy, including Sea Training Staff. Real world events highlight the need for enhanced small arms training for all Navy personnel.  The foundation of this training is the use of small arms for Force Protection. All CF members must not only be comfortable with but very confident in handling various weapons in order to ensure their safety and the safety of others while at sea or alongside either domestically or abroad.
