The squadron was formed on 7 November 1942 as the 429 (Bomber) Squadron RAF with No 4 Group at RAF East Moor, but reassigned to RCAF under No 6 Group shortly after and disbanded on May 31, 1946.[1] The squadron moved to RAF Leeming in 1943.

The current transport role was established at RCAF Station St Hubert on August 21, 1967, as 429 Tactical Transport Unit and in August 1981 renamed 429 Transport Squadron and moved to CFB Winnipeg. The final move was in 1990 to 8 Wing in Trenton, Ontario. 429 Squadron was disbanded in 2005.

Two years later in August 2007, 429 Squadron was again re-activated, this time operating the CC-177 Globemaster III strategic transport aircraft.

Aircraft used by 429 Sqn include:
