The ground work for the REGIMENT MC began during the 2009 riding season, when some currently serving and retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces got together and decided to start a veteran’s motorcycle club. The club began with just a few soldiers and an idea. We all agreed on two basic concepts, first was it would be a 100% veterans club, and second quality over quantity of its membership. From those original ideas the club has developed slowly but surely. First we developed our patch, and decided we wanted a patch that was unmistakably military, next we developed our constitution & by-laws, and finally our membership requirements. We have received help and support from a number of other veteran clubs across this great nation, who without their help our club would not be where it is today. So now that everything is complete we have chosen the 17th of March 2010 as the official birthday of the REGIMENT MC. We hope to see you all on the road in the future.
REGIMENT FOREVER FOREVER REGIMENT
Our club was established to provide support for Canadian veterans past, present and future. We also support other veteran groups with the same goals as the Regiment MC. Members of this organization share a common bond of Strength, Honour, and Pride of service in the Canadian Armed Forces.

THE THREE PIECE COLOURS OF THE REGIMENT MC
The top rocker signifies the name of our club “REGIMENT” a military word signifying a “unit of an army” usually of ground troops, consisting of two or more battalions or battle groups, a headquarters unit, and certain supporting units.
The center patch is tombstone shaped depicting an upturned rifle and helmet. The helmet signifies the fallen soldier. The inverted rifle signals a time for prayer, a break in the action to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. The maple leaf signifies we are Canadian and the colour red for the blood spilled by our soldiers in the quest for rights and freedoms. The MC signifies we are a “MOTORCYCLE CLUB” the blue and white are for the colours found on the NATO flag showing that we support our allies in the fight for peace and liberty.
The bottom rocker “CANADA” is the great country which we have all served. The colour green represents the combat uniform of the soldier, black represents all the soldiers that have made the ultimate sacrifice, the black is then highlighted with white for peace.
