Join the Ontarios as they commemorate and celebrate 150 years of service, sacrifice and commitment to Canada and the communities of the former Ontario County.


The Regiment will troop its Guidon and will be joined by its Cadet Garrison in welcoming a new Commanding Officer and Regimental Sergeant Major.


For the first time in 25 years, the Regiment will assemble an all-ranks Old Guard comprised of veterans and retired or former Black Cats who continue to serve in other regiments or Canadian Armed Forces units. If you fall into one of these groups, we want you on parade.


Upon conclusion of the parade, the Regiment and its Old Guard will march through downtown Oshawa led by the Regimental Band of the Governor General's Horse Guards, arriving at the Armoury for a reception immediately afterward (approx. 1300hrs).


This will be a very special and historic day for all Black Cats, past and present. Whether you served as a soldier, NCO, officer or cadet, don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime event. RSVP today!
