AAA Editor Notes
Changing of the Guard takes place on the lawns of Parliament Hill. The traditional military ceremony is performed by “ceremonial guards,” assembled from two regiments—the governor-general's Foot Guards and the Canadian Grenadier Guards—along with the regimental band and pipers. The ceremony includes inspection of dress and weapons, the Trooping of the Colors and the exchange of compliments between the old and new guards. After the ceremony, guards execute sentry duties at Rideau Hall.

Note: Daily at 10 a.m., early July-late Aug. Temporarily, the ceremony may be held on the grounds of Rideau Hall instead of Parliment Hill, call ahead for the latest updates; weather conditions or special events may affect the schedule; please call ahead for updates.

Time: Allow 45 minutes minimum.
