The Regiment has been advised by the City of Toronto that due to COVID by-laws that are still in place, we are limited to 100 people (soldiers & guests) for Saturday’s parade.In order to avoid a possible breech of the by-law, the CO has asked that non-serving members do not attend the parade on Saturday.
Regretfully, this includes the wider Regimental Family including members of the Association and family members & friends of serving members who planned to attend.There will be a cap of 85 members (including support staff, band etc) on parade at Coronation Park.
A wreath will be laid on behalf of the association and we will share photos online via our social media accounts shortly after the conclusion of the parade.
The Regiment regrets any inconvenience this may cause.
