Join Our Unit

We train on Tuesday evenings 7 - 10 pm. The Army Reserve is the part-time component of the Canadian Army. Most Army reservists work part-time for the Army and full-time at their civilian job. Others are full or part-time students. The Army Reserve has three main roles:

  • Provide the framework for mobilization or expansion by using existing Reserve units framework should the nation ever need to respond to a large crisis or an emergency
  • Connect with Canadians by strengthening the ties the Canadian Army Reserve has with local communities
  • Augment the full-time Army by providing soldiers, units or specialists.

The Army Reserve is progressively more active than it has been in years with an increased operational role in the Canadian contribution towards the maintenance of peace and stability in the world.

To apply you must meet the following basic eligibility requirements:

  • Canadian Citizen 16 years of age (with parental consent)
  • Minimum Grade 10 education (or higher depending on entry plan).
