Defence of Canada Force

The Defence of Canada Force is a Home Guard type force established in the Canada in 1989. It was linked to the Army Reserves and recruited from volunteers aged 18–60 with previous Canadian forces (Reserve or Regular Force) experience. It was introduced to guard key points and installations likely to be the target of enemy ‘special forces’ and saboteurs, so releasing other units for mobile Defence roles. The pilot started in September 1989 and consisted of four companies that were used to relieve the Army of guarding key points, consisting of 18-59 year-olds with training obligation of 4-5 weekends per year. By 1990 there were 5,000 persons nationwide, with one platoon of 20-26 persons in every reserve force regiment. Membership was open to recruits who had previous military service, which could have been with the Army, Royal Canadian Navy or Royal Canadian Air Force, or as adult instructors in the Army, Navy or Air Cadet Forces. Reserve personnel of significant length of service were also eligible. This meant that there wasn’t the usual raw recruit training, just refresher training to bring everyone up to speed. When the Soviets invaded Alaska most of the

40x Platoons = 10x Companies = 3x Regiments = the South Saskatchewan Regiment, The Winnipeg Grenadiers, The Irish Fusiliers of Canada (Vancouver Regiment) and The West Coast Rangers

Land Force Atlantic Area

Land Force Quebec Area

28x Platoons = 7x Companies = 2x Regiments = The Royal Rifles of Canada and the Le Régiment de Joliette

Land Force Central Area

40x Platoons = 10x Companies = 3x Regiments = the Perth Regiment, 1st Battalion, the Irish Regiment of Canada, and the Great Lakes Rangers

Land Forces Northern Area

60x Platoons = 16x Companies = 4x Regiments = 1st Battalion, the Yukon Regiment, 2nd Battalion, the Yukon Regiment, 3rd Battalion, the Yukon Regiment, and the Dawson Rifles

I plan to post the Canadian Rangers Patrol Groups and American and Russian Legion

Neat stuff!

A couple of questions:
How many of these units actually "exist" and how many were units that were created due to the war?

And I had my jaw drop open at the mention of "the battle of Beaver Creek" and there being a whole infantry brigade (2500 manpower) there. Have you been to Beaver Creek? The population of that town (and I use that term loosely since it's so small) is less than 200. Packing in more than 12 times that amount is astonishing to say the least.

Besides that, it's pretty neat stuff. Thanks for sharing!

Frist all of these units except for the Defence of Canada Force are real, most of the reserve units (battlegroups) are at company strenght only and not very big. The defence of Canada Force unit were taken from the supplmentary order of battle,Canadian units reduced to nil strenght in the 1960's

Second Canadian Brigade would more like be around 5,000 vs 2500 and the battle of Beaver Creek is not done but it would the the Airborne Battlegroup droping in to secure the town before the russians arrive however in mech wafare they would spread out in defensive pockets along the Alaska Highway to stop the russians. Yes it is a small town but so was gettysburg and Baston

I think you misunderstand. I'm not saying a battle couldn't take place there. Heck, a battle can take place anywhere...even a hill. What I'm saying is that KEEPING 2500 people in Beaver Creek is going to be really hard to do. You have them listed as being there after the battle. That's one overcramped little dot on the map.

One things for sure, I'm sure the 120 people in Beaver Creek (assuming that many survived the battle there) would probably be happy for the company until the food started to run out.
