Who We Are

4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group (4 CRPG) is responsible for Canada’s four western provinces.

It provides patrols for national-security and public-safety missions in sparsely populated, coastal and isolated areas of Western Canada that cannot be conveniently or economically covered by other parts of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Canadian Rangers of 4 CRPG have been instrumental in the past in helping the RCMP and local enforcement officials by

  • patrolling the West Coast and waters of Canada;
  • watching for illegal immigrants in Canada's waters;
  • conducting many search and rescue (SAR) operations; and
  • assisting in community evacuations.


A group of six members of the Canadian Rangers dressed in red baseball caps and red hooded sweatshirts lay on the ground and aim long, wood-stocked rifles down a firing range.

When the official call came out, we immediately establishel a command post in a central area with easy access to the lake and the area of town considered to be in the red zone.
