The order is when the unit was formed. Ie the RCHA
were raise first in kingston, then the cav(Armour),
then the Inf.. The Engs came from the pioneers of the Inf first until they were formed in the 1800s. The right of the line is by seniority. RCHA,Armour, Inf, Eng, Support units. Also by birthday of regt, type.

There probably is seniority/precedence within the Armour corps.

However, the Artillery all belong to the same regiment (Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery or Royal Regiment of Canadian Horse Artillery for the regular force mud gunners) so precedence between various gunner units is a moot point. Same for the engineers, I believe.

Actually there is a difference with the order of precedece being RCHA, Armour (Horse units), RCA and then the rest.

RHCA has precence besae they are a horse unit, nit because thay are Reg F.

Precedance in the Arty (RCA) is from the date the unit was formed. I think the oldest is 3 Field RCA in New Brunswick.

A-Company, The Duke of Edinburgh's Company, First Battalion, The RCR

Right-of-Line of the Regiment. RCR's Canada's Senior Infantry Regiment. Order of Precedence within Infantry: ONE. Formed 21 December 2020 when the Infantry School was authorized. FYI below...for whomever gives a rats *** !

"Units of a regiment take senority according to the date of origin of the oldest unit of the regiment, e.g. Militia regiments having two or more battalions take precedence with the date of origin of the oldest battalion of the regiment of the Militia.
Units or Guards take precedence over other units in the infantry, regardless of the date of origin. Regular Force units take precedence over Reserve units.
The dates of organization assigned to regiments are those established by General Orders or parallel authority. Senority is based upon the date of origin as a regiment or battalion, not as local or independent companies of Militia, unless some other senority has been specifically authorized" p. 232.

Mitchell, Michael Major. CD,DUCIMUS: The Regiments of The Canadian Infantry. St. Hubert, PQ, 1992. ISBN # 0-9696421-0-5 (for those interested in the book...really cool!) [Canadian]

As for Forces wide in the order of precedence:
1. Naval Operations
2. Armoured
3. Artillery (except that units of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery take precedence over Armoured Branch units)
4. Military Engineering
5. Communications and Electronics
6. Infantry
7. Air Operations
8. Logistics
9. Medical
10. Dental
...and the list continues up to
22. Postal

Colgan,

Yeah sorry about that...just getting lazy from typing. O.k.

11. Land Electrical and Mechanical Engineering
12. Chaplain
13. Security
14. Legal
15. Administration
16. Band
17. Personnel Selection
18.Training Development
19. Physical Education and Recreation
20. Public Affairs

Remember this order was also made 01 Jan 1968. I don't know if this list has been updated, i'm sure it has. I.E. # 19...that trade no longer around. PERI (Physical Education and Recreation Instructors) to bad...our forces need those guys I think. Note as well this is from the book Ducimus: The Regiments of The Canadian Infantry...I have included the info and ISBN above. Hope this list completes your request buddy!
