Our History

The Algonquin Regiment originated on July 1st, 1900 with the creation of the "97th Regiment of Rifles". The former Algonquin Rifles and today’s The Algonquin Regiment are truly northern Ontario’s Regiment, having been formed from companies spanning locations as far west as its first Headquarters in Sault Ste Marie to as far east as North Bay. Our independent companies can trace their official heritages back to 1863 and the Fenian Raids of 1866.

During our unit’s history, its rugged northern soldiers have answered every call for duty, and their sacrifice to Canada’s conflicts have earned our regiment 28 Battle Honours. Many of our soldiers continue to come from the north’s miners, loggers and hunters.
