Canada will extend the Canadian Forces' contribution to the Global Coalition Against Daesh and the NATO mission in Iraq, until the end of March 2021. Canada has about 500 military members in Iraq, including 200 who are part of a NATO training mission and 120 special forces who have been helping Iraqi forces root out Islamic State insurgents around the northern city of Mosul.
