Post War

Many Queen's Own soldiers served in various parts of the world, including Korea, Cyprus and Germany. On 16 October 1953, the 1st and 2nd Canadian Rifles became the 1st and 2nd Battalions, The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, of the Canadian Army. The Regular Army Battalions drew many recruits from members of The Queen's Own who had seen action in the Second World War. The militia battalion that was serving in Toronto became the 3rd Battalion. The Canadian Rifles Depot was also formed in early 1953 and was later renamed The Queen's Own Rifles Regimental Depot.

The 2nd Battalion was reduced to nil strength on 31 August 1968; the 1st was re-badged on 26 April 1970; and the Regimental Depot was closed on 7 December 1968.
