Wel­come To
The Royal Cana­dian Regiment

The Royal Cana­dian Reg­i­ment (The RCR) is Canada’s senior Reg­u­lar Force Infantry Reg­i­ment. Formed in 1883, it has gar­risoned com­mu­ni­ties from Hal­i­fax to Vic­to­ria and has served in vir­tu­ally every mil­i­tary cam­paign under­taken by the coun­try. The active or serv­ing com­po­nent of the Reg­i­ment con­sists of:

  • Reg­i­men­tal Head­quar­ters and The Reg­i­men­tal Ware­house co-​located at Vic­to­ria Bar­racks in Petawawa, Ontario;
  • The 1st Bat­tal­ion at Vic­to­ria Bar­racks and the 3rd Bat­tal­ion at Foulkes Bar­racks, both in Petawawa, Ontario;
  • The 2nd Bat­tal­ion at Gregg Bar­racks in Gage­town, New Brunswick;
  • The 4th Bat­tal­ion at Wolse­ley Bar­racks in Lon­don, Ontario;
  • The Reg­i­men­tal Asso­ci­a­tion, which includes retired or for­mer serv­ing mem­bers as well as serv­ing sol­diers, Non-​Commissioned Offi­cers and offi­cers of the Reg­i­ment, is rep­re­sented by estab­lished branches across Canada. Its National Head­quar­ters is co-​located with Reg­i­men­tal Headquarters.

The Royal Cana­dian Reg­i­ment is not a unit or entity in the order of bat­tle of the Cana­dian Forces. It is not in the chain of com­mand, it has no sin­gle com­man­der and it has no oper­a­tional tasks as such assigned to it. Rather, the Reg­i­ment is a group­ing of formed units of both the Reg­u­lar and Pri­mary Reserve Forces, together with serv­ing mem­bers who are assigned duties as extra-​regimentally employed (ERE).

By tra­di­tion, the Royal Cana­dian Reg­i­ment also includes all retired mem­bers, mem­bers of The RCR Asso­ci­a­tion, as well as serv­ing or retired mem­bers of other Reg­i­ments, Corps or Branches who have served with The RCR, mem­bers of our affil­i­ated Reg­i­ments and the fam­i­lies of Reg­i­men­tal members.

In some impor­tant respects, the Reg­i­ment is a fam­ily whose mem­ber­ship embraces all those who cher­ish the Reg­i­ment. United by a pride in past accom­plish­ments and the ded­i­ca­tion to serve their coun­try, all mem­bers of the Reg­i­ment are com­mit­ted to main­tain­ing the high stan­dards set by those who have gone before, and to meet­ing the chal­lenges of the future.

The web­site is intended to serve all mem­bers of our Reg­i­men­tal fam­ily, as well as to offer a view of the Reg­i­ment for all Canadians.
