About The Rileys

The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (Wentworth Regiment) (RHLI) is a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Army, based at John W. Foote VC Armoury in Hamilton, Ontario. The RHLI is part of 31 Canadian Brigade Group which is part of 4th Canadian Division.

The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry is the oldest combat infantry regiment in the Hamilton-Burlington area. The infantry’s role is the most complex and demanding of all combat roles and the light infantry role is the most demanding within the infantry. With continuous heritage stretching back to 1862, no other unit in Hamilton and Burlington comes close to matching the history, combat record and community presence of “the Rileys”.
