An image of the Changing of the Guard ceremony that takes place outside of the Parliament Hill in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada, in July 2009. The guards are a military unit in the Canadian Forces with elements drawn from two Primary Reserve (militia) regiments of Foot Guards: The Governor General's Foot Guards from Ottawa and the Canadian Grenadier Guards from Montreal. Every summer, the Ceremonial Guard performs the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill and posts sentries at Rideau Hall, the residence of the Governor General of Canada, and the National War Memorial.
