The Toronto Scottish Regiment is a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The regiment was first formed in 1915 as the 75th Battalion (Mississauga), Canadian Expeditionary Force, and was later reorganized and redesignated several times before being officially designated as The Toronto Scottish Regiment (Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother's Own) in 1927.
The regiment has a long and distinguished history, having served in both World War I and World War II. During World War I, the regiment fought in many major battles, including the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Vimy Ridge. During World War II, the regiment served in Italy and northwest Europe, participating in the Normandy landings and the liberation of the Netherlands.
Today, the Toronto Scottish Regiment continues to serve as part of the Canadian Armed Forces, providing trained and equipped soldiers to support both domestic and international operations. Its members also participate in a variety of community and ceremonial events, including Remembrance Day ceremonies and parades.
