Welcome to the web site of the Regimental Family of The Essex and Kent Scottish.
The Regiment is a Primary Reserve army unit of the Canadian Forces comprised of men and women in the infantry and some other trades with garrisons in Windsor and Chatham, Ontario. The Regiment is ably supported by the volunteer organizations shown on the left menus. This web site content is intended to provide basic information about the Regimental Family. For more information, whether joining the Reserve army or one of our volunteer organizations, please contact us.
Our Regiment has served Canada continuously since 1885 and has served the country since first settlement in what is now Essex and Kent counties in South Western Ontario.
Members of our Regiment fought in the War of 1812-14, including the capture of Fort Detroit in 1812, sent soldiers to the South African War 1899-1900, World War One, World War Two and more recently has deployed soldiers to UN and NATO missions and now Afghanistan.
We are proud to train soldiers for the service of Canada whether locally or internationally.
