OTTAWA: Canada announced Wednesday it will assume command of a new NATO training and capacity building mission in Iraq, sending up to 250 troops, armored vehicles and four tactical helicopters to the country later this year, reports AFP. 

The Canadian troops will be deployed in the Baghdad region starting in the fall of 2018 to help “Iraq build a more effective national security structure and improve training for Iraqi security forces,” said a government statement.
