The ship will replace HMCS Toronto, which had been on the mission from February to December 2013. HMS Toronto carried out numerous missions includingdestruction and interception of 7 narcotics shipments of a multi-million value.

HMCS Regina’s mission is to detect, deter and detract terrorist activities in the region.
