Our History

The first signals unit in Montreal, the "4th Signal Company, Canadian Corps of Signals", was founded 1 January 1921 and comprised 55 members, including 9 officers and 46 Non-commissioned members. In early 1930, the status of the unit changed and it became the "4th Divisional Signals, Canadian Corps of Signals", a unit comprising a Headquarters and three companies.

In March 1950, the 2nd Corps Signal Regiment Royal Canadian Corps of Signals (R.C.C.S.) became the 10th Signal Regiment R.C.C.S. and the 4th Infantry Divisional Signals Regiment R.C.C.S. became the 4th Signal Regiment R.C.C.S. At the end of 1954, the two units were amalgamated to form the "11th Signals Regiment R.C.C.S".

The 11th Signals Regiment R.C.C.S. was renamed the "15th Independent Squadron R.C.C.S." in 1965; following the unification and reorganization of the Canadian Forces, it became, on April 1st 1970, the "712 (Montreal) Communication Squadron". On May 8th 1976, the "712 (Montreal) Communication Squadron" officially changed the royal Corps of signals representative insignia at an official parade, adopting the new communication and electronics Branch insignia.

In October 2010, the “712 (Montreal) Communication Squadron” is officially renamed the 34 Signal Regiment.
