Who We Are

35 Combat Engineer Regiment is a Regiment of the Canadian Army Reserve. 35 CER has existed since June 15th 1920 and is the only Reserve engineer unit in eastern Quebec. The values that have built its solid reputation are based on the spirit of comradeship, dynamism and cohesion.

The expertise of the 35 CER has served the local community on numerous occasions in collaboration with civilian authorities. For example, the Regiment was present during the ice storm crisis in 1998 and was involved in building a bridge for the bicycle path ‘’Route Verte’’ in the town of La Pocatière in 2004. Recently, members of 35 CER have been deployed in the previously flooded areas of Montreal (Op Lentus). Some 35 CER members have also volunteered for Canadian missions in foreign countries such as Afghanistan, Congo, Haiti, Kuwait and Ex-Yugoslavia.

Mobility and counter mobility are part of a Combat Engineer’s main functions. They make sure that civilians and soldiers can move freely. Tasks of a Combat Engineer may involve the construction of bridges and medium rafts, medium and heavy vehicle driving, assault boat driving, water purification, use of explosives, mine neutralization and electric and hydraulic tool use.

An exceptional refuge for many species

Trois-Rivières, Quebec — Amateur ornithologists set up nearby, equipped with cameras with telephoto lenses, in the hope of taking the best picture of a migratory bird in flight. The view of Lake Saint-Pierre is magnificent, and you can observe a variety of wildlife and plant species. No, it is not a national park, but the Munitions Experimentation Test Centre (METC). What a great place to work for environmental specialists!

Our History

10 Engineer Squadron came into existence on June 15, 1920 and took part in both world wars. After World War II, there came a reorganization and 10 Engineer Squadron was recreated on January 2, 1947.

The new Engineering crest was promulgated in the fall of 1974. The emblem features a beaver, which has historically symbolized hard work, an appropriate characteristic for Canadian Military Engineering. The cap badge also features the name of the corps in both official languages. In the fall of 1975, the unit became the 10th Field Engineer Squadron. This new name better reflected the realities of the squadron's work in the field. Under Major Denis Thébeau’s leadership, the unit went from being a squadron to being a regiment on November 23, 2006 and took the name of 35 Combat Engineer Regiment.
