Earth Day: Wainwright’s heritage bison herd inspires Second Annual Bison Run

Wainwright, Alberta — You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd, according to the questionable wisdom of the late Texas country singer Roger Miller, but you could support Earth Day by running in the second annual Bison Run, if you’ve a mind to.

Thrive, not just survive: 3rd Canadian Division explores wellness culture and mindset change

Our History

39 Combat Engineer Regiment does not have an Operational History; however, 6 Engineer Squadron retains its history of service during the First and Second World Wars. Both 6 and 44 Engineer Squadron provided reserve engineer augmentees during Canada’s mission in Afghanistan. During the First World War, the 6th Field Company was mobilized for service in Canada in August 1914 for local protection duties and engineer services. During the Second World War, details of the 6th Field Company were mobilized for service in Canada from August 1939 to December 1940 for local protection duties and engineer services. The company participated on the landings at Normandy in June 1944 as part of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and provided field engineer service in Germany from June 1945 to April 1946. Following the conclusion of the Second World War, the company returned to its domestic duties.

In June 1948, the company responded to floods in New Westminster and Port Mann, and installed two temporary Bailey Bridges over the Capilano River connecting North Vancouver to West Vancouver when the original bridge was washed away. Today, the Regiment continues its tradition of service to Canada through the generation of reserve engineer soldiers that augment Canadian battle groups overseas, and support civilian authorities during times of domestic emergency and security.
