Defence Minister Rob Nicholson made the announcement at a news conference this morning in Ottawa, along with his parliamentary secretary, James Bezan, and Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada Vadym Prystaiko.
The $11 million will be used for equipment and training, including:
"This is a substantial contribution, this is equipment that Ukraine has specifically asked for and it's equipment Ukraine urgently needs to face the continued aggression from the Putin regime," Nicholson said.
The first shipment of clothing, which Nicholson said will dress about 30,000 Ukrainian military personnel, will leave CFB Trenton by plane on Thursday and is expected to arrive on Friday.
Other equipment is being sent by sea in early 2015.
