438 Squadron is a Total Force Air Reserve Squadron located at St. Hubert, Quebec.

Equipped with CH-146 Griffons , 438 Squadron supports the various militia elements in the region.

With a typical staffing level of over 60-percent reservists, 438 Squadron typifies the Total Force concept in which highly trained Reserve Forces are relied upon to augment regular CF units for international commitments and domestic operations.

438 Squadron had its roots as a fighter-bomber squadron during World War II. At that time, it flew Hurricanes and Typhoons. After the war, it was equipped with Vampires and Sabres , becoming 438 "City of Montreal" Squadron Reserve .

With unification, it took on the role of an Air Reserve Squadron based at CFB Montreal flying the CC-123 Otter and CH-136 Kiowa helicopter. In January 1996, the Kiowas were retired from service and that April the Squadron took delivery of its first CH-146
