Welcome to the Canadian Guards Association website. The Canadian Guards was the senior Canadian Infantry Regiment from 1953 to 1970 when it was disbanded as part of a larger defence review. This Association of former members and their spouses perpetuates the memory of the Regiment and of all who served in her ranks.

A number of Ottawa area members meet for lunch every Thursday upstairs in the Fox and Feather Pub located at the corner of Elgin and MacLaren Streets. All Association members and friends in the area or visiting from out of town are encouraged to join the group any Thursday.

The Ottawa Valley and Eastern Ontario monthly pub lunch remains the first Thursday of each month.
