Canada is poised to join the international coalition launching air strikes on the Islamic State group in Iraq after Prime Minister Stephen Harper sought parliament's support.

If lawmakers greenlight the action on Monday - as expected - it will be Canada's first military expedition since Libya in 2011.

Harper said members of the House of Commons, where his Conservative Party enjoys a solid majority, would be asked to vote on the six-month "counter-terrorism" mission.

In his Commons address, Harper said fighter jets and air-to-air refueling aircraft would be sent to the region to strike targets within Iraq's borders.
