Who We Are

The Essex and Kent Scottish is a Primary Reserve unit within 31 Canadian Battle Group (31 CBG), whose task is to augment Canada’s military with trained infantry soldiers. The Essex and Kent Scottish is a regiment with old lineage that can be dated to back to 1749 as a French militia at Fort Pontchartrain (Detroit), although it has unbroken lineage dating to 12 June 1885. Essex and Kent counties produced the first militia organization in Ontario and the first units to engage in combat (1794) outside Canada.
