Our History

During the 1970s Camerons served with the Canadian NATO Component in Germany and as Canadian contingents on UN Peacekeeping duties in places such as Egypt, the Golan Heights and Cyprus. In the 1990s soldiers from the regiment participated in OPERATION HARMONY in 1992 in Croatia as well as providing a steady stream of personnel to Regular Force units deploying on other operations.

1994 and 1995 were the years for big parades. The regiment participated in the Freedom of the City parade marking the 50th anniversary of the D Day invasion and the Freedom of the City parade marking the 50th Anniversary of VE Day. In 1997, the Regiment was at ground zero for the "Flood of the Century". The Camerons spent the spring sandbagging and building dykes throughout Southern Manitoba.
