Located in Montreal, its primary role is the provision of combat-ready troops in support of Canadian regular infantry. However, as it is also a Household regiment, it performs similar ceremonial duties to theGuards regiments of the British Army, which primarily entails mounting the guard on Parliament Hill and at Rideau Hallin Ottawa, a task it shares with Canada’s other Household infantry regiment, the Governor General’s Foot Guards. The Canadian Grenadier Guards is an allied regiment to the British Grenadier Guards. (Also see Ceremonial Guard)
