The Highland Light Infantry of Canada including the Highland Fusiliers, mobilized for active service on 24 May 1940. It was re-designated as the 1st Battalion, The Highland Light Infantry of Canada, embarked for Britain on 20 July 1941. On D-Day, 6 June 1944, it landed on JUNO Beach in Normandy as part of the 9th Canadian Infantry Brigade, 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. The Highland Light Infantry regiment participated in the D-Day landings, disembarking at Nan sector of Juno Beach on June 6, 1944 with the rest of the 9th Brigade. This consisted of The Highland Light Infantry, the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders, and the North Nova Scotia Highlanders. These regiments were not in the first wave assault, but landed later in the morning and advanced through the lead brigades. They continued to fight in North-West Europe until the end of the war. The overseas battalion was disbanded on 15 January 1946.
The regiment also contributed an aggregate of more than 20% of its authorized strength to the various Task Forces which served in Afghanistan between 2002 and 2014.
