38 Canadian Brigade Group (38 CBG) is an Army Reserve Formation of 3rd Canadian Division, headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 38 CBG comprises a Headquarters, located in Winnipeg, and 13 Army Reserve units distributed throughout Northwestern Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Beyond the borders of the Army, and into their communities, soldiers from every 38 CBG unit support more than 20 separate charities within their respective towns and cities. The Children’s Hospital Foundation (Winnipeg), Sunshine Foundation (Thunder Bay) and the Children’s Health Foundation (Regina) are a few organizations that have benefited from the selfless dedication of the men and women who proudly wear a uniform.
38 CBG was established on April 1, 1997 after the amalgamation of the previous two districts—Manitoba Lakehead District and Saskatchewan District. 38 CBG comprises a Headquarters, located in Winnipeg, and 13 Army Reserve units distributed throughout Northwestern Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
In remembering the past, 38 CBG units carry the honour of having received a total of ten Victoria Crosses awarded to its soldiers during times of war. This is the largest representation of VC winners of the three Western Reserve brigades.
Today, soldiers from 38 CBG are actively involved in their role as Canada’s citizen soldiers. Members have served in domestic operations such as Operation Assistance (1997 Manitoba Floods), Operation Mandolin (1999 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg), Operation Abacus (Year 2000 computer threat) Operation Grizzly (G 7 Summit 2002) and Operation Peregrine (2003 British Columbia Forest Fire Emergency).
