39 Service Battalion (39 Svc Bn; French: 39e Bataillon des services) is a Canadian Army Primary Reserve combat service support unit of the Canadian Forces that can fight in a defensive role and provides both logistical and army engineering maintenance support to the units within 3rd Canadian Division's 39 Canadian Brigade Group, which consists of all Primary Reserve army units in British Columbia.
Prior to 2010, 39 Canadian Brigade Group (39 CBG), which is the headquarters responsible for all Primary Reserve army units in British Columbia, had two individual service battalions under its chain of command.
