The Canadian Scottish Regiment is an infantry unit in the Army Reserve of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). The Army Reserve is a part time component of the CAF, where members train and serve on a paid part-time basis while also maintaining civilian careers.
Many reservists serve one night a week, and one weekend a month. At times, members take training courses during the summer. Trained members are eligible to serve Canada either internationally where the CAF is deployed, or domestically in response to forest fires or flooding in Canadian communities.
Soldiers in the Army Reserve learn to operate a variety of weapons systems, communications equipment and vehicles. Members receive training in first aid, outdoor survival and leadership, allowing them to work as part of a cohesive team under any conditions.
