With a mindset of ‘One Team, One Mission’, 3rd Canadian Division is currently focused on the following priorities:

The 3rd Canadian Division One Team is comprised of approximately 5,400 Regular Force soldiers, 4,800 Reserve Force soldiers, 1,400 DND civilian employees, and 900 Canadian Rangers. One of four operational commands of the Canadian Army, this command is responsible for all Canadian Army administration and operations in western Canada from the Pacific Ocean to Thunder Bay, Ontario, and is headquartered at 3rd Canadian Division Support Base Edmonton, Alberta.

In June 2013, Land Force Western Area was re-designated 3rd Canadian Division. The Division encompasses one Regular Force Mechanized Brigade Group, three Reserve Force Brigade Groups, one Division Support Group, one Division Training Centre, two Canadian Ranger Patrol Groups, an Intelligence Company, and a Military Police Regiment:
