Who We Are

The Essex and Kent Scottish is a Primary Reserve unit within 31 Canadian Battle Group (31 CBG), whose task is to augment Canada’s military with trained infantry soldiers. The Essex and Kent Scottish is a regiment with old lineage that can be dated to back to 1749 as a French militia at Fort Pontchartrain (Detroit), although it has unbroken lineage dating to 12 June 1885. Essex and Kent counties produced the first militia organization in Ontario and the first units to engage in combat (1794) outside Canada.

 The Essex and Kent Scottish is always hiring intelligent, fit, and confident men and women with an interest in dynamic and challenging training as infantry soldiers. Primarily new members are High School or University students with time to work one evening a week and one weekend a month during the school year (Sept-May). Within the first few years of service, new members must also be available to attend full-time courses during the summer (Jul-Aug) where technical skills are acquired for employment on operations and training during the part-time training year.
