About Us

The Lorne Scots Museum celebrates the history and service to our nation of The Lorne Scots (Peel, Dufferin & Halton Regiment). The Lorne Scots Regiment is a primary reserve unit of the Canadian Army based in central Ontario with armouries in Brampton, Georgetown and Oakville. With a lineage dating back to the citizen soldiers of the 2nd York Militia at the turn of the nineteenth century, the Lorne Scots Regiment and its predecessors has fought with distinction in the War of 1812, the First and Second World Wars, and Afghanistan. The Lorne Scots Regiment has also defended the Canadian homeland in times of natural disaster and has contributed to many international peacekeeping missions.
