Queen's York Rangers, 1st Amer Regt (RCAC)

A career with the Queen’s York Rangers is not for everyone – a regiment steeped in the history of Canada tracing its lineage back to Robert Rogers Rangers in 1756, and served with distinction in particular under John Graves Simcoe and helped in part to build the City of Toronto, a city the regiment continues to serve to this day. The regiment has been awarded Battle Honours from the war of 1812 to Operations in Afghanistan. Members serve in the Reserve Army on a strictly volunteer basis, there are no contracts or fixed terms of service; with most members feeling a sense of pride and duty toward the communities they live in and the country at large.
