As Honorary Lieutenant Colonel of 41 Signal Regiment in Alberta, I’m witness to many of the Regiment’s events.  One of my favourites is the Soldier’s Appreciation Dinner, held annually at Red Deer’s Cormack Armoury.  I’m continually impressed by the Regiment’s enthusiasm, sportsmanship, commitment, humility, and any number of other qualities that make spending time with them so enjoyable and enlightening.  This short video slide show captures some of the sights and sounds of this special day.  You can also click on the photo gallery.

41 Signal Regiment (41 Sig Regt) is a Reserve Force communications unit assigned to 41 Canadian Brigade Group (41 CBG) in Alberta.  The Regiment is comprised of three communication squadrons and a squadron headquarters.

The 41 Canadian Brigade Group Squadrons are:

  •        1 Squadron and Regimental Headquarters, Edmonton
  •        2 Squadron, Red Deer
  •        3 Squadron, Calgary

41 Signal Regiment provides communication information systems, strategic infrastructure services and support to 41 CBG units.

Join The Unit

There are terrific financial incentives for students who chose to become Reservists while going to school. Soldiers of 41 Signal Regiment train Wednesday nights from 7 to 10 p.m.

The Army Reserve is the part-time component of the Canadian Army. Reserve Force members usually serve part time and may serve while going to school or working at a civilian job.
