31 Canadian Brigade Group Headquarters
701 Oxford St. East
London, Ontario N5Y 4T7
Headquarters are not traditionally considered to have lineages similar to military units. 31 Canadian Brigade Group Headquarters does, however, continue a heritage of military headquarters in London which have, for over a century, commanded units of the Canadian Army in South-Western Ontario. Depending on the Army's organization, the various headquarters that have been located in London have seen changes in the number of units and the size of the area of operational responsibility they commanded.
As early as the 1860s, the number of Militia units throughout the Canadian provinces outgrew the span of control possible for a single centralized headquarters, and a more comprehensive command structure was required. In 1868, a system of Military Districts was created and assigned the responsibility for overseeing the training and coordinating the administrative of Militia units in their assigned areas. These Military Districts were further divided into "Brigade Divisions".
