Structure of the Canadian Forces Land Force Command
The Canadian Army is not an independent service; rather it is the land component of Canada's integrated defence forces known as the Canadian Forces; as such its proper name is Land Force Command (LFC).
LFC is commanded from Land Force Command Headquarters at NDHQ in Ottawa and is subdivided into four regional command areas:
Each area is responsible for the regular army and militia forces located within its geographical purview - all except the Atlantic Area has a regular army mechanized brigade group under its command, together with between two and three militia brigades.<br>
Each mechanized brigade group contains 3 infantry battalions, an armoured regiment, an artillery regiment, and a combat engineer regiment. Each brigade group also contains a service support battalion, signals squadron and military police platoon.
