Representatives from many local reserve units and commands were in attendance.

Cadets from affiliate Calgary Highlanders corps were on parade with the Regiment.

The parade was one of the last for Pipe Major Michael Giles; a unit tradition is for the Pipe Major to wear the personal pipe banner of the Commanding Officer, and to transfer the banner on the change of command parade.

Several members of the regiment were also recognized or decorated on the parade. Corporal MacDougall received the General Campaign Star for service in Afghanistan as part of Task Force 3-09.

Receiving the Canadian Forces Decoration for long service and good conduct were Major Simon Cox, Captain Dan Davidson, Warrant Officer Sean Fletcher, Sergeant William Klein, Master Corporal Jamie Moreau, Master Corporal Jason Peters and Corporal Matt Bird.
