Regimental Memorials

Commensurate with the age and history of the Regiment,  there are memorials to The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada throughout the world, primarily in Canada and North West Europe. One of the oldest is the Ridgeway Memorial, on the University of Toronto grounds, dedicated 1 July 1870.

While the exact number of memorials is unknown, fifty-nine known memorials are listed below.

The Memorial Committee is working to complete this listing while also continuing to identify worthy areas to install and dedicate new memorials. If you would like to support the installation and maintenance of our memorials, you can make an online donation to the Regimental Trust Fund by selecting “Memorials” from the drop down of funds.
