2nd Canadian Division (2 Cdn Div)is one of the six major formations to report to Army headquarters in Ottawa and includes all the Regular and Reserve units working within the Province of Quebec. Its role – like that of the other three similar regional Canadian Divisions in the country – is to provide versatile, combat­ ready land forces. 2 Cdn Div troops may be employed by the other commands for special, domestic and expeditionary operation.

 

Previously named Land Force Quebec Area (LFQA) since its creation in 1992, 2 Cdn Div perpetuates the organization of military units in the Province of Quebec dating back to and before the Confederation.

 

Our Mission

Members of 2 Cdn Div take part in continuous, challenging, individual and collective training to prepare them to achieve this mission.
