The Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Heritage Committee was formed and met for the first time on 14 March 1992. The founding president was Colonel (Ret'd) W. B. S. Sutherland. Major (Ret'd) Rod Middleton later served in the leadership role. The Committee was composed of serving and retired members of the Regiment, and reported to the Regimental Executive Committee. The original role of the Committee was to contribute to the monitoring, recording, preserving and enhancement of the heritage of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, primarily through the planning and undertaking of new initiatives and works in keeping with the stated goals and objectives of the Regiment. In conjunction with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Museum Committee, and within the corporate identity of the Regiment, a primary objective of the Committee was to facilitate the assembly of a high quality historically balanced collection of materials representing the Regiment's achievements in preparation for the 100th Anniversary of the Regiment in 2014. The scope of activities included: preparing and maintaining a long-term written Heritage Preservation Plan; cataloguing and monitoring the condition of and ensuring the preservation of Regimental monuments and memorials not assigned to other units; planning, recommending and facilitating the execution of new works of art; investigating and recommending other means of collecting; and preserving and making available to the Regiment and to the public the heritage of the Regiment and developing and maintaining an adequate written set of operating procedures to govern the efficient and ethical functioning of the Committee as a representative body of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. The most significant achievement of the Committee was the research, creation, and publication of a book on the Regiment's history. In 1998 questionnaires were sent out to retired and serving members of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry asking for anecdotes and archival material detailing their service with the Regiment. Those surveyed were also asked if they would be willing to be interviewed as part of a new Regimental history book project. Volunteers were trained in interviewing skills and interviews took place across Canada. The book "The Patricias: the Proud History of a Fighting Regiment" by Dr. David Bercuson was published in 2001. Following the publication, the Committee became somewhat dormant. By 2009 it had become a subcommittee of the Regiment's 100th Anniversary Committee.
