Despite the closing of CFB Calgary (including both Currie Barracks and Harvey Barracks), the city is still home to a significant military presence, including HMCS Tecumseh (Naval Reserve), the HMCS Tecumseh Band, and the 746th Communications Squadron (Communications Reserve). Several units of the Army Reserve are located in Calgary, including:
Headquarters, 41 Canadian Brigade Group (former CFB Calgary)
The King's Own Calgary Regiment (RCAC) (Mewata Armouries)
Regimental Band of The King's Own Calgary Regiment (RCAC)(Museum of the Regiments)
33 Field Engineer Squadron (Canadian Military Engineers) (NE Armouries)
The Calgary Highlanders (Mewata Armouries)
Regimental Pipes and Drums of The Calgary Highlanders (Mewata Armouries)
14 (Calgary) Service Battalion (NE Armouries)
Calgary Detachment, 15 Field Ambulance (Canadian Forces Medical Service) (Mewata Armouries)
Militia Training Detachment Calgary (Mewata Armouries)
Additionally, there are several squadrons of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets, Navy League Cadets, Royal Canadian Army Cadets, and Royal Canadian Air Cadets who train at various facilities.
