The Montréal Cavalry Institute is a non-profit corporation incorporated under part 3 of the Quebec Corporations Act. It is an incorporated association of former members and friends of the Royal Canadian Hussars who wish to coordinate their efforts in preserving history and helping the unit financially and otherwise. The Institute is independent of the Regiment but it works in close cooperation with the Regiment and the Royal Canadian Hussars Association.
The Institute was originally incorporated in 1935 to own, maintain and operate stables and a riding school adjacent to the Côte-Des-Neiges armoury to allow members of the Regiment to perfect their riding skills and train their horses. Since the use of horses was discontinued in or around 1939, the Institute has taken on a different role, as outlined below.
The mission of the Institute is to educate the public with respect to the history, traditions and role of cavalry and armoured soldiers and other mounted military forces or similar organisations, and their contribution to the development of the city of Montréal, the province of Québec and the country of Canada, notably by:
