Located at Edmonton Garrison in Edmonton, Alberta, the Third Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (3 PPCLI) is the only light infantry battalion in western Canada. As an infantry battalion, our role is to close with and destroy the enemy. As a light infantry battalion, we are trained to do this through a variety of insertion methods (parachute, helicopter, vehicle, boat, and most importantly by foot) and in a variety of complex terrains (e.g. urban, mountains) that would prove difficult for mechanized forces.
