00074 - Canadian Pathfinders
00074 - Canadian Patrol Pathfinders, Within the Canadian Forces, one component seems particularly misunderstood, both by commanders and by the mainstream public. The Patrol Pathfinders, trained by the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre in Trenton, have a unique but little known function as a vanguard reconnaissance force. Often integrated into regular Canadian Army units, the lack of a visible role for Pathfinder elements in Afghanistan led some to question what value was added by the Patrol Pathfinder program. In this context, misconceptions emerged which suggested that Pathfinders simply duplicated the capabilities of paratroopers. In truth, the Pathfinders fill a valuable niche in the Canadian Army. After completing an eight-week course that is described as one of the world’s most ‘gruelling’, Pathfinders are able to rapidly deploy into hostile environments from speedboats, helicopters, submarines, and via parachute. Once deployed, they can then operate independently to gather intelligence for commanders on enemy capabilities, prepare sniper positions, and otherwise set conditions favourable to a future advance by a larger military formation. In short, Pathfinders are perfectly suited to what the Canadian Forces refers to as ‘adaptive dispersed operations’ (ADO).
