During Operation CADENCE, the Canadian Forces (CF) provide unique resources and capabilities to support to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)-led Integrated Security Unit (ISU) by monitoring maritime, air and land approaches. The ISU is responsible for ensuring the security of the Summit participants and nearby residents during the 2010 Muskoka G8 and Toronto G20 Summits and is comprised of members from the CF, RCMP, Ontario Provincial Police, Toronto Police Service and Peel Regional Police.
The G8 and G20 Summits provide the leaders of the world’s most industrialized nations and the leading emerging nations with an opportunity to discuss issues such as fiscal and monetary policy co-ordination and international development to advance international economic co-operation.
