Changing the Guard takes place on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, Canada, every morning from late June through late August, and provides a colourful spectacle of pomp, pageantry and music.

The Ceremonial Guardsmen taking part are mostly university and college students who are reservists in the Canadian Forces.

The Ceremonial Guard is drawn from two regiments – the Governor General’s Foot Guards and the Canadian Grenadier Guards. They are accompanied by their own regimental band and pipers who provided musical support for the ceremony.
