In July 1883 Otter got word from Ottawa of his command of “an Infantry School of Military Instruction” in Toronto. After three months’ exposure to British military life, he left in October for Canada, and he recruited 100 men and established his school at the New Fort (on the grounds of the present-day Canadian National Exhibition); it opened for instruction in April 1884. In 1884, Major-General Ivor John Caradoc Herbert, turned the Infantry School Corps into the Canadian Regiment of Infantry. When its four companies gathered for the first time, in 1894 at Lévis, Que., Otter acted as colonel.
