The Royal Canadian Army Pay Corps (RCAPC) was an administrative corps of the Canadian Army with its own cap badge, and other insignia and traditions.[2] It was established in 1906 as the Canadian Army Pay Corps. It was responsible for administering all financial matters.

The Canadian Army Pay Corps began officially operating on 1 July 1907.[3] It was redesignated the Royal Canadian Army Pay Corps on 1 Nov 1920.[4] In 1967 the corps was amalgamated with other units into the Logistics Branch.[5]


When the Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force were merged in 1968 to form the Canadian Forces, the administrative Corps of the Army were deactivated and merged with their Naval and Air Force counterparts to form the Canadian Forces' personnel branches defined in Canadian Forces Administrative Orders (CFAOs) as "...cohesive professional groups...based on similarity of military roles, customs and traditions."
