2019 marks the 103rd anniversary of the formation of No. 2 Construction Battalion (aka the “Black Battalion”). Canada’s first and only segregated all-Black unit paved the way to a future of diversity, as demonstrated in today’s armed forces. With the simple desire to serve their country, these men forged a remarkable legacy and are an important part of this country’s history. 

The event will be held on Saturday July 13, 2019 at the deCoste Centre, with the honor parade starting at 10:30am and the ceremony starting at 11:00am.
