21 Electronic Warfare Regiment (21 EW Regt) exists to provide trained Army Electronic Warfare operators and support personnel to the Canadian Forces. We are the only Reserve Electronic Warfare (EW) Squadron within the Canadian Forces that is a part of the Regular Forces Regiment. This allows excellent opportunity for the unit and its members to train, exercise and deploy with both Regular & Reserve Force units throughout the country or eventually to voluntarily deploy overseas. Deployments occur both in their EW Specialties, and in positions related to their initial trades training. Electronic Warfare involves the intercept, Location, Analysis and Jamming of a potential enemy’s communications on the modern battlefield. To fulfill our mission, we combine the training of Signals Intelligence Specialists, Intelligence Operators, Signals Operators, and Support Trades to complete our tasks. Both Signals Intelligence Specialists and Intelligence Operators then go on to take a series of additional courses directly relating to EW equipment and process. Many of our members have chosen to serve in various NATO mission around the world, but deployment either domesticly or overseas is not a requirement for these positions.
There are several reserve positions available at 21 Electronic Warfare Regiment. Please contact us for an invite to an information session online or in person, which will include information on how this job and its various trades we will train you in can fit with current students and recent graduates.
Unit members start at a daily rate of pay of 124.40 and with allowances will earn over 17K for this May-Aug summer. Typically, Reserve Force members continue to work and train with their home unit for one evening per week and two weekends per month, from September to April of each year. At 21 Electronic Warfare Regiment initial training will center on common military skills followed by specialization in tactical Electronic Warfare or one the related support trades involved at the unit.
Candidates must be Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents between 16 and 53 who are prepared to undergo both physical and classroom training. Specialty training is delivered in a pattern easily matched to the availability of Post Secondary and Sr high school students. Workers in the gig economy, those whom are underemployed or are between positions have all been successful on an ongoing basis with this mixed part and full time position. Not all training must occur during summer blocks of full time service. All positions are open for permanent residents, however the application process will take longer for some trades than others while background checks are completed.

It is possible to change the trade and position you have applied for at several stages in the application process if you are unsure of which trade offers the best experience for you.
