|Welcome to the Canadian Expeditionary Force
Study Group (CEFSG) Matrix Project. On this site you will be
able to follow the development of the Matrix to provide information on
all of the components of the CEF during the First World War "The
Great War" from 1914 to 1919. This project was initiated
in March 2006 as a means to
authoritative listing of the Canadian units that served in the field in
all theatres of the operations. Matrix discussions are a component
of the CEFSG Forum in the Matrix
Check the Matrix Blog.
During the intervening years, the web
site has been expanded to include a number of projects of the CEFSG
members. Details of many of these projects have now been
incorporated into a number of Matrix
Utilities, which are updated regularly (last update: 14/03/2014
). We believe that you will find that these utilities
answer questions that you will have about the CEF from 1914-1919. If you
can not find the answer to your question, contact us at your
convenience. Most questions are answered within 24 hours.
For a quick check on a specific
unit, please refer to the Summary
Tables for the Corps and Troops. The summary tables (the
first step in the formation of the Matrix Project) provide a quick
reference to what unit you might need to know about the unit you are
researching, thus we have now added that link to the header of this page
and the footer of all pages.
If you wish to participate in this
project, please visit the web site of the Study Group (CEFSG) and
register with the CEFSG
Forum. All questions, comments, corrections are not only
welcome but expected. Please note that the information on the various units described
herein is based on the Order
of Battle at the end of the Great War in November
1918. For other periods, please refer to the units in the new
are currently working on the transformation of the static Web
based version of the CEFSG Matrix Project to a fluid Wiki
version. We will need the cooperation of a large number of CEFSG
members to assist in this transfer. A core team is already hard
at work. Please come and join us on this project so we can have
the Wiki Matrix fully operational as soon as possible.

If you are a "Junior Researcher" starting to look for a
relative in the CEF you might want to start with the "Navigation
Chart" for a simple explanation of the structure of the CEF
and how this web site is designed. If you are an advanced
researcher and just want to get to the details, you may choose to go
direct to the Matrix entry page.
