Many records relating to military service consist only of lists of names on a muster roll or pay list. For later periods, personnel records usually exist, which can also provide researchers with personal information about an individual such as date and place of birth, name and address of next of kin,previous military service and occupation.

Library and Archives Canada holds extensive collections of military records. Use the left-hand menu to select the period or type of records of interest to you. Each section provides information about available sources, links to relevant databases and links to Web sites of other institutions that hold military records.
