Not to be overshadowed by their brothers in arms south of the border with all that glory of killing Osama and almost winning the War on Terror, the Canadian Department of National Defence emerged with a victory of their own. The target was of no less importance than the notorious Al-Qaeda leader, and the action was swift and merciless. This time the relentless blow was dealt to… the print-on-demand industry, particularly to one of its flagship companies named Zazzle. On one of those rainy spring mornings, (let’s call “The D-Morning”), many unsuspecting Zazzle artists woke up to some heavy losses within their galleries. As soon as dust has settled, everyone came to a shocking discovery that all the products of any shape or form, featuring Canadian military insignia, have been removed from Zazzle marketplace, supposedly at the request from Canadian Department of National Defence. No warning shots, no explanations – months upon months of work and hundreds of products just gone. My “Military Insignia” project was most likely hit hardest, considering the fact that almost half of my galleries were dedicated to Canadian military insignia.
Canadian Operational Support Command (CANOSCOM)
The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) (French: Garde côtière canadienne - GCC) is the coast guard of Canada. It is a federal agency responsible for providing maritime search and rescue (SAR), aids to navigation, marine pollution response, marine radio, and icebreaking. Unlike some other coast guards, such as the United States Coast Guard, the CCG is a civilian organisation with no military or law enforcement responsibilities.
Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM)
Joint Task Force 2 (JTF 2)
Canadian Special Operations Regiment (CSOR)
427 Special Operations Aviation Squadron (427 SOAS)
Royal Canadian Regiment (The RCR)
Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI)
The regiment is not an operational structure, but rather a protocolary one. The four battalions are thus operational entities, under the 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group for the Regular Force and the 41 Canadian Brigade Group for the Primary Reserve. Although the regiment carries the designation of 'Light Infantry', two of its battalions are mechanized infantry, and the unit has never been organized as a traditional light infantry regiment.

I will also make my insignia designs available free of charge for any non-profit/non-commercial and charitable causes, benefiting troops and their families, as I have already done on a number of occasions.
