The Essex and Kent Scottish

Website sponsored by The Scottish Borderers Foundation

Welcome to the website of the Regimental Family of The Essex and Kent Scottish.

The Regiment is an Army Reserve 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 in the E&K Family drop down menu.

This website content is intended to provide basic information about the Regimental Family. Information regarding the serving component is from open sources. 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 1812-15, including the capture of Fort Detroit in 1812; the Patriot War of 1838; the South African War 1899-1900; World War I; and World War II; and more recently has deployed soldiers to UN and NATO missions in Eqypt, Cyprus, Croatia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Middle East, Ukraine and Latvia.

We are proud to train soldiers for the service of Canada whether it is locally or internationally.
