History

Land Force Command Headquarters (LFC HQ) was created on 19 October 1965 as Mobile Command with headquarters at St-Hubert, Quebec. It was redesignated in 1994 as LFC HQ and plans were made for the 1997 transfer of headquarters to Ottawa. LFC HQ's purpose is to provide a combat ready, general purpose force for the defence of Canada, to work in conjunction with the United States forces in the defence of North America, to support Canada's North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) commitments and to maintain a ready force for United Nations (UN) or peacekeeping service. It also has command and control of the Militia and Air Reserves as well as the Canadian forces' regional responsibilities in Quebec which includes liaisons with the provincial government and the training of cadets in the region.
