In December 1941, following the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the beginning of World War II in the Pacific, it was decided to organize a number of brigades for the defence of Canada.[2] In February 1942, one brigade was organized for each of the eleven military districts. In Alberta, it was 41st (Reserve) Brigade Group in Calgary.[1]

After World War II, the regional command system was reorganized several times. The Alberta Militia District was reformed into 41 Canadian Brigade Group on 1 April 1997. Its headquarters took over the Brigadier-General Stan Waters Building, formerly the 1 PPCLI headquarters building at CFB Calgary, after the departure of the Regular Force units to Edmonton.[1]
