YCISS Afternoon Seminar Series:

OP SAIPH: Canadian counter piracy and counter terrorism naval operations
in East Africa and the Indian Ocean

with Cdr Steve Waddell
(Commander HMCS Fredericton)

Since 1991, Canada has deployed ships almost three dozen times to the
neighbourhood of the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea to carry out
counter-terrorism and counter-piracy operations. HMCS Fredericton has
spent the last six months ?on-station? with NATO?s multinational maritime
force off the east coast of Africa under Operation SAIPH, where HMCS
Fredericton?s captain (Commander Steven Waddell) and crew prevented and
deterred piracy and terrorism to improve the region?s security and provide
a safer maritime environment.

Commander (Cdr) Steven Waddell will discuss Canada?s leading role in
maritime security as part of its continuing commitment to international
security. Cdr Waddell?s presentation will provide audiences with a rare
opportunity to interact with the ship?s captain, hear his first-hand
accounts and view operational images from this fascinating deployment.

Raised in Temagami, Northern Ontario, Cdr Waddell joined the Canadian Navy
in 1990 as a Maritime Surface and Sub-Surface Officer. Cdr Waddell has
served in several theatres of operation, including the Arabian Gulf and
South West Asia, as well as representing Canada at the Joint Services
Command and Staff College in the United Kingdom, where he earned his
Master?s Degree in Defence Studies through King?s College London. Cdr
Waddell assumed his current position in command of HMCS Fredericton in
January 2009.
