Job Description:

  • The Reserve component of 21 Electronic Warfare Regiment has several positions open now. Training and employment with the reserves begins on completion of the application process when an offer is made (we don't make you wait). In addition to full time training from when you are available until the end of the summer, there is part time training of one evening a week, and two weekends a month during the school year. Students in qualifying programs will also be eligible for $2000 per year in tuition assistance. The Army Reserve has a new program which guarantees that all new members will be offered full time employment for their first four years in the reserve. While this is an ideal summer job choice for both students and recent grads, it is also flexible and appropriate for those looking for a strong second career, or a start point for a full time career later in the Canadian Forces or other federal departments.
  • The primary role of the Reserves is to augment, sustain and support the Regular Forces at home and abroad. Reservists train and work at a unit close to their home and are not obligated to move or to serve overseas, as is typical with the Regular Force. However, many of our members have chosen to deploy on operations and training both at home and abroad, often with the Regular Force portions of the unit or with other CF formations when positions are available.
  • The following reserve occupations are currently being hired by this unit:
  • Communicator Research Operator (Land Electronic Warfare or Signals Intelligence Specialist)
  • Army Communication and Information Systems Specialist (Signals Operator)

  • Intelligence Operator
  • Vehicle Technician
  • Human Resources Administrator

  • 21 Electronic Warfare Regiment (21 EW Regt) is the Canadian Forces only Land Electronic Warfare unit. Unique when compared to most capabilities in the Canadian Army, the organization is structured with both the Regular Force and Reserve Force components of the capability together in one ‘Total Force’ unit. The high pace of 21 EW Regt offers excellent opportunities for the Reserve members of the unit to train, exercise and further develop their skills while remaining in the Kingston Community. Many members of the Reserve in the unit started as students and have remained with the unit for an extended period in addition to their civilian employment, or transferred to the Regular Force after completing their education.
