Welcome to the PPCLI Association!

August 2014 marked the 100 years of service to Canada by Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. The Regiment was founded by an act philanthropy when in August 1914 Montreal businessman Andrew Hamilton Gault’s offer of $100,000 for the purpose of raising and equipping a regiment was accepted by the Government of Canada. The Regiment was to be composed of veterans and would be the first Canadians in the field in World War I. 

Since that time more than 1,850 Patricia’s have fallen in the service of Canada, in all her wars, in peacekeeping and peace support operations, in operations in Canada and elsewhere.

Over the 100 years of its history, many more thousands of other members of this Regiment have been wounded or injured through their service to this nation.
