In April 1970, the Militia Signal Units were transferred to Communication Command and 3 Area Field Signal Squadron was renamed 744 (Vancouver) Communication Squadron.

In June 1976, the Nanaimo Troop was designated as a dependent troop of 744 (Vancouver) Communication Squadron. On the 8th of June 1978, 748 (Nanaimo) Communication Troop was established as an independent unit of the Communication Reserve by authority of CFOO 10-6. In July 1994 the unit became a squadron.

On 1 April 1980, Royal assent was granted for official use of the 748 (Nanaimo) Communication Troop Unit Badge. The badge is based on local native legend and consists of a stylized Raven and motto "TEYMUT."

The badge is symbolic of both the role of the unit and the unit’s identification with its host location.
