Change of the Guard

Change of the Guard

It’s Canadian tradition at its most colourful! The Ceremonial Guard of the Canadian Forces bring stirring military drill and music to Parliament Hill. The change of the guard will be held daily from July 10th to August 25th at 10am. However, it is recommended to arrive earlier in order to have a good view!

The parade begins at the Cartier Square Drill Hall where the New Guard march from Cartier Square to Parliament Hill while the Old Guard forms up behind the East Block. The New Guard arrives on Parliament Hill precisely at 10:00 and the band begins to play “The 10 Provinces March”. The new guard are inspected by the company commander, and they are stood at ease. Following the inspection of the new guard, the old guard is inspected.
