Our History

The formation of The Brockville Rifles pre-dates Canadian Confederation. The Brockville Rifles officially came into being on October 5th, 1866. No outline of the Regimental history would be complete without consideration of the Militia Units which lived and fought along the St. Lawrence River and in the northern states in the years prior to Confederation.

The Canadian Military tradition is essentially that of the citizen soldier – the Militiaman. The development of a substantial Regular Force is a very recent occurrence in the history of the Canadian Nation. A glance at a map will indicate that the City of Brockville, situated in Leeds County, lies along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. When, at the close of the American War of Independence, the remnants of the Loyalists regiments moved north to British Territory, it was to this area that they came. Among these units were: Roger’s Rangers, Jessop’s Corps and the Kings’ Royal Regiment of New York.
