A Canadian soldier seen holding survival candles which will be his only source of heat in an igloo he built in the Arctic Operations Advisors where soldiers learn how to build and sleep in improvised survival shelters near a camp at the Crystal City training area during the Arctic Operations Advisors Course near Resolute Bay, the Polar Continental Shelf Program building and Arctic Training facilities during the High Arctic phase of the Arctic Operations Advisors Course where they learn how to operate, travel, survive and build shelters in which temperatures at times were as low as -50 degrees (-58 F) with the windchill. Photographs from the Canadian Army's Arctic Operations Advisors Course (aka AOA) which takes place in two phases, first in the Sub Arctic in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and then on to the High Arctic in Resolute Bay, Nunavut. This is a special course to train soldiers to advise military operations to work in the Arctic. These photographs are from the Sub Arctic phase of the training in the tree line in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.
