I think its: Strong. Proud.
Atleast thats what some of the posters say.Join The Army, Visit exotic places, meet strange people, then kill them.

I do beilive Strong, Proud are the mottos of the Canadian Forces as a whole.... Just beifly scanning over the Army website all I can find is:
One Army, One Team, One Vision.
For those interested, I've found this as well:
Navy: Your Power To Sea
I couldn't find anything on the airforce.Nick P. Kucher

Air Force: Per Ardua ad Astra; through adversity to the stars
Isn't the Navy, ready aye ready?
Also, I thought the army mottos were up to each individual corps/regiment.
I think "the Strong, the Proud" are slogans, rather than mottos, but I could be wrong.Captain MK Wilson, BSW

I think 5 Field is "Ubique, Quo Fas et Gloria Ducunt" which means "quickly, whether right and glory lead".. I don't know about the others.Tesia Hackett

Almost 'Ubique' means everywhere. 'Everwhere, Whither Right and Glory Lead' Same motto as the Royal Artillery
My affiliated Regiments motto is 'Honi soit Qui Mal Y Pense' (Shame on him who thinks ill of it.) It's written in a garter, which appears in many regiments, and corps' capbadges, it's also on the Royal Coat of Arms. The garter symbolises the Order of the Garter, which is one of Englands oldest chivalrys. Basically the Order (back in the day of 1348) was 25 knights and King Edward III, it was like a reward for the highest loyalty and military merit given by a knight.
Bit of history to chew on. lol

The artillery have the same motto because we essentially all have the same job we serve the guns and its "Everywhere Wither Right or Glory Lead".
