CFB SILO INFORMATION
CFB Shilo Information
Canadian Forces Base Shilo (or CFB Shilo) is an Operations and Training base of the Canadian Armed Forces, located 35 km (22 mi) east of Brandon, Manitoba and adjacent to Sprucewoods. During the 1990s, Canadian Forces Base Shilo was also designated as an Area Support Unit, which acts as a local base of operations for south-west Manitoba in times of military and civil emergency.
It is located at the very southwest corner of the Municipality of North Cypress – Langford, and the very northwest corner of the Municipality of Glenboro – South Cypress. Additionally, it lies adjacent to the eastern border of the Rural Municipality of Cornwallis. The base has an 18-hole golf course. The course hosts numerous military and civilian golf events.
Shilo at a glance:
CFB Shilo is the home to the following operational units:
- 1st Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery
- 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry
It hosts the following detachments supporting 3rd Canadian Division:
- 3rd Canadian Division Training Centre, “C” Company Shilo
- 1 Military Police Regiment, detachment Shilo.
- 11 CF Health Services Centre
- 3rd Canadian Division Support Group Signal Squadron, detachment Shilo
The landscape in this area is particularly well suited to these operations. The rolling hills are well suited to hidden target firing drills. Soil compositions of loose sand/gravel aggregates are also ideal for artillery and munitions training. The lack of surface bedrock outcropping greatly reduces the chances of hazardous ricochets during live-fire exercises and also assists in the safe retrieval and secure disposal of both detonated and un-detonated ordnance.
The Royal Canadian Artillery Museum is the only museum in the world that explores the history of Canadian gunners who served Canada since 1855. Established in 1962 at CFB Shilo and provides a national portrait of Canadian gunnery. It includes more than 65,000 artifacts, including more than 150 artillery pieces and vehicles.
