The Canadian Rangers are a sub-component of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve. They provide patrols and detachments for national-security and public-safety missions in sparsely settled northern, coastal and isolated areas of Canada.

About the Rangers

The Canadian Rangers are the military’s eyes and ears in the north.


The Rangers are organized into five Canadian Rangers Patrol Groups that cover distinct geographical areas.


Canadian Ranger training is flexible and varies from patrol to patrol and from one area of the country to another.
