Les Fusiliers du St-Laurent is a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces. It was first raised in 1869 but also perpetuates the 4th Battalion, Select Embodied Militia, from the War of 1812. From 1954 to 1968, as a reserve regiment, it also was given a subsidiary title as the 5th Battalion of the Van Doos. This association was ended in 1968.

The regiment is based in Rimouski, Quebec.


The regiment, and the older units it perpetuates, have rendered front line service in three conflicts:

All four battle honours are emblazoned on the regimental colours. The regiment celebrated 150 years of continuous service in 2019.[5]
