A Canadian WW1 Uniform?

As Jay says, he's a Canadian WW1 era soldier - he wears the post-1913 Canadian version of the SD jacket with it's distinctive 7-button front, plus the belt (and one pouch) of the Canadian 1916 Pattern "Oliver" equipment:

The shape of his badge looks a little like the 128th Infantry Battalion of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

I'm inclined to think the cap badge is that of one of the Garrison Regiments.   Pete.

 

It's a similar sort of shape Pete, that's for sure, but the badge on the soldier doesn't look so perfectly circular as the garrison units, and the voiding on the left side of his badge seems larger don't you think?

It looks round enough to me Frogsmile, I think the variations in the voiding are just reflections off the badge.    Pete.

Okay, well it will be interesting to see what any of our Canadian forum members think.
