Our History

10 Engineer Squadron came into existence on June 15, 1920 and took part in both world wars. After World War II, there came a reorganization and 10 Engineer Squadron was recreated on January 2, 1947.

The new Engineering crest was promulgated in the fall of 1974. The emblem features a beaver, which has historically symbolized hard work, an appropriate characteristic for Canadian Military Engineering. The cap badge also features the name of the corps in both official languages. In the fall of 1975, the unit became the 10th Field Engineer Squadron. This new name better reflected the realities of the squadron's work in the field. Under Major Denis Thébeau’s leadership, the unit went from being a squadron to being a regiment on November 23, 2006 and took the name of 35 Combat Engineer Regiment.
