Mission Task

A number of Army Reserve units have been assigned specific Mission Tasks. Members within these units are trained in these specific capabilities and ready to be fully integrated, as a formed entity, into the Regular Force units that they reinforce.

The mission task for our unit is: Mortars – A platoon of 50 members, which is trained in the employment of two groups of four 81-millimetre mortar tubes to provide tactical medium mortar indirect fire support to a manoeuvring battle group.

Who We Are

The Loyal Edmonton Regiment is a Primary Reserve infantry unit of the Canadian Forces. The “Loyal Eddies” are part of 41 Canadian Brigade Group, 3rd Canadian Division and our Home Station is located at Jefferson Armoury in Edmonton, Alberta and C-Company in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

As a Primary Reserve unit, service is voluntary. Reservists are enrolled to serve on a part-time basis but they may volunteer for full-time employment. Many courses are run on weekends, but often important career courses are full-time. Full time training and courses are often held in the summer. While serving in a reserve unit, most reservists have full-time careers in a wide range of civilian occupations or are full-time students.

As a light infantry unit, our main focus is to provide trained infantry soldiers and mortarmen to meet the operational requirements of the Canadian Forces. Training is done both locally and at various training centres across Canada. The light infantry training is always a challenge, but it is also rewarding and prepares a soldier to react to difficult situations both at home and abroad.

Benefits of Joining

When you join our unit, you will receive competitive pay for your part time or full time work as well as be eligible for on the job training that could benefit you in civilian life. Also, there are medical, dental and educational benefits available to Army Reservists.
