Our History

38 CER was organized by Canadian Forces Organization Order 6697 on December 2, 2011, and officially stood-up on parade April 14, 2012. Prior to this official unit formation and since 2006, a combat engineer capability was being incubated in Winnipeg under the Fort Garry Horse.

These sappers in an armoured recce unit were unique as the only “black hat sappers" in the Canadian Armed Forces. More recently the North Saskatchewan Regiment began cultivating a combat engineer capability in Saskatoon.
