1st Battalion, Royal 22e Régiment

Royal 22e Régiment Badge

1e Battalion, Royal 22e Régiment (1 R22eR), is a mechanized infantry battalion. Its role is to generate and train versatile troops, capable of operating in the full spectrum of operations. 1 R22eR is among the top Canadian infantry units.

Comprised of three infantry companies, one headquarters company with a reconnaissance platoon and a service company, 1 R22eR has faced numerous operational challenges over the years. Even though its mechanized infantry unit mandate gives it a certain expertise with light armoured vehicles (LAV III), 1 R22eR can quickly be called to provide light support (on foot) when the situation warrants.

The official history of 1e Battalion, Royal 22e Régiment can be found at the Directorate of History and Heritage website.
