39 Combat Engineer Museum is a progression from its predecessor, 6 Field Engineer Squadron Museum Association (6 FESMA) which was incorporated in August 2006 but has existed as a military collection since the 1970's.
6 FESMA continues to exist as a registered BC Society and is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charity. The 6 FESMA continues to be the custodian of hundreds of artifacts and archives and has been re-purposed to be the support organization for 39 CER Museum.
39 CER Museum is committed to:
Fostering regimental pride and cohesiveness
Expanding a museum presence to all regiment locations
Maintaining a Regiment website
The objective of 39 CER Museum is to preserve the heritage of the Royal Canadian Engineers and its predecessors in British Columbia by establishing and operating a military museum, to educate the general public, members of the Canadian Forces through lectures, discussions, workshops, visits, publications, research, and exhibits in real and electronic form, and to cooperate with other public and private organizations devoted to the same or similar purposes.
