Abbreviation41 CBG

41 Canadian Brigade Group (41 CBG; French: 41e Groupe-brigade du Canada) is a Canadian Army formation of the 3rd Canadian Division. The formation is composed of Army Reserve units within the province of Alberta. The home station of the brigade is in Calgary.

The brigade has an establishment of 2,500 all ranks. The role of the Army Reserve is to be "a professional part-time force that provides local engagement and a responsive integrated capability, at home or abroad, in sustainment of the Army mission." Most of the soldiers within the brigade serve part time in units or sub-units stationed in their communities. As the Canadian Army generates task-specific units for employment on expeditionary and domestic operations under the command of the Canadian Joint Operations Command, 41 CBG, as a force generator, is tasked with the following:

  1. On order provide general-purpose, combat-capable soldiers and specialist sub-subunits (troops or platoons) capable of augmenting the Regular Force on expeditionary operations; and
  2. On order provide a domestic response unit (Territorial Battalion Group), sub-units (Direct Response Companies), or sub-sub-units (Direct Response Platoons or Local Response Platoons) capable of augmenting the Regular Force on domestic operations.
