Canada’s peacekeeping mission to Mali to have sizable female presence

OTTAWA — The Canadian military’s upcoming foray into Mali is expected to include a marked female presence as the Trudeau government looks to have Canada lead by example in the push to have more women on peacekeeping missions.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan on Monday will unveil details of Canada’s mission to Mali, which will be centred around the deployment of up to six military helicopters.

Well that’s something to look forward to.
