35 Canadian Brigade Group consists of 12 units stationed throughout Eastern Quebec and a headquarters located in the Connaught Barracks on 3 côte de la Citadelle in Quebec City. It consists of approximately 2200 reservists and 60 members of the Regular Force. Almost 40 percent of its complement lives in the area surrounding Quebec City and 60 percent in the regions. The units are located geographically in Shawinigan, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Quebec City, Chicoutimi, Lévis, the Beauce and the lower St Lawrence.

Our History

In February 1942, the Canadian Government issued a directive announcing the formation of 12 Reserve brigade groups in each of Canada's Militia districts with effect from 1 April 1942. These Reserve brigade groups were numbered 31 through 42; the Quebec City Brigade Group was 35. The three functions assigned to the Reserve were: to provide support to the civil power as required, support the active forces available for the defence of Canada and, where required, constitute a reservoir for the expansion of the active army. With the end of the war, 35 Reserve Brigade Group was dissolved on 15 May 1946.

With the implementation of the Total Force concept, the Quebec Militia and all the elements of the Regular Force in Quebec have accordingly been combined under a unified command since 1 September 1992, namely Land Force Quebec Area (LFQA). LFQA comprised three Militia districts. Since 1 April 1997, it has been grouped into two Canadian Brigade Groups (CBG): 34 CBG in the Montreal area and 35 CBG in Quebec City.
