Who We Are

We are the only Reserve Electronic Warfare (EW) Squadron within the Canadian Forces that is a part of the Regular Forces Regiment. This allows excellent opportunity for the unit and its members to train, exercise and deploy with both Regular & Reserve Force units throughout the country voluntarily deploy overseas. Deployments occur both in their EW Specialties, and in positions related to their initial trades training.
Electronic Warfare involves the intercept, Location, Analysis and Jamming of a potential enemy’s communications on the modern battlefield. To fulfill our mission, we combine the training of Communicator Research Operators, Intelligence Operators, ACISS (Signal) Operators, and Support Trades to complete our tasks. Both Communicator Research Operators and Intelligence Operators then go on to take a series of additional courses directly relating to EW equipment and process. Many of our members have chosen to serve in various UN and NATO peacekeeping mission around the world.
