When We Train

Since there is a large proportion of students in our ranks, the Reserve Force largely operates in parallel with the school year. 

September to May: This is the period when part-time work is usually done. The rate of work is approximately one evening per week and two weekends per month (more or less, depending on your availability).

May to August: Our members have the opportunity to work full-time. This is the period when trade courses are usually given.

There are some opportunities to work full-time throughout the year in the reserves, but a reservist’s service is based on part-time employment, which is great for students and those with civilian jobs who still want to serve their country.

Our History

On 1 January 1965, six separate and independent units providing combat support services were merged under the name of 55 Canadian Service Battalion. On 31 March 2010, following a reorganization of 2nd Canadian Division, the battalion was given its current name: 35 Service Battalion.

The battalion members are proud of their traditions and their excellent work. They have supported numerous Regular Force and Reserve Force operations, particularly the ice storm and the floods in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. A number of members have also participated in overseas deployments such as the missions in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Haiti.

In 2015, 35 Svc Bn celebrated its 50th anniversary trouhghout an activity-filled year that gave the public a better understanding of 35 Svc Bn’s activities and achievements.
