A Belgian woman's plea for help to find the Canadian soldier she thinks is her biological father has captured the attention of thousands of people around the world, prompting Canadians to dig into the military pasts of their own families and to scour archival websites to try to solve the mystery.

...

In an email to CBC News, Library and Archives genealogy consultant Emily Potter said although the quality of the photos makes it difficult to tell, "it does appear that he was a sergeant with the Royal Canadian Artillery."
Another researcher at Library and Archives Canada also looked at which Canadian regiments and divisions were stationed in Belgium in 1944 and 1945. Her findings narrowed down the search to:

4th Canadian Armoured Division, including Governor General's Foot Guards (21st Canadian Armoured Regiment); Canadian Grenadier Guards (22 Canadian Armoured Regiment); 27th Canadian Armoured Regiment (Sherbrooke Fusiliers); the Princess Louise Fusiliers (Motor); 28th Canadian Armoured Regiment (British Columbia Regiment); and Lake Superior Regiment (Motor).
2nd Canadian Infantry Division.
The Lincoln and Welland Regiment (part of the 10th Canadian Infantry Brigade).
3rd Canadian Infantry Division.
