Histoire administrative

The Canadian Army was established in 1855 when the government passed the Militia Act, which provided for a paid, regular army consisting of active volunteer militia. Its forerunner was the militia dating back to 1651. The Canadian Army ceased in February 1968 with the integration of the Royal Canadian Navy, the Canadian Army and the Royal Canadian Air Force under the Canadian Armed Forces.

Historique de la conservation

The records of the Canadian Army and its various branches were acquired by U. Vic. Special Collections in 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1989. They document various military activities in both World Wars and after, including battles, training programmes for officers and enlisted men, drills, parades and intelligence tests, and include textual and photographic records. Much of the information complements that found in other military records at U. Vic., such as the papers of Reginald Herbert Roy, which researchers may also wish to consult.
