Hi Neil,
In the first image you have the general list badges, very common, (images 1-4). Image 5 is a generic police badge. Images 6 & 7 are the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry, Image 8 is a CEF badge, but the 72nd are repro'd and that looks like it may be one. Image 11 & 12 is a CEF badge to the 58th Bn and the last badge looks like a collar badge to the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles CEF.
In the second image, the Queen's Own Rifles, (1&2) the Waterloo Regt is another well known copy. (3 & 4), 19th Bn CEF (5 & 6), Princess Louise Fusiliers (7 & 8) very common badge, Carleton & York officers (9 & 10), Royal 22e Regt (11 & 12), Royal Montreal Regiment CEF period with the slider.
In the second image,

Third set. Lord Strathcona's Horse, IV Princess Louise Dragoons, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, cap and collars (both collars same side), Royal Canadian Dragoons (slider and lug type) and Royal Regiment of Canada. All common badges.
Fourth set. Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders (current), Stormont Dundas and Glengarry early pattern (somewhat scarcer), Irish Regt of Canada, Victoria Rifles of Canada, Regiment de Maisonneuve, 48th Highlanders and West Nova Scotia Regt, again except for the one SD & G, common badges. No repros that I see.

Fifth set. Essex & Kent Scottish (current), Canadian Scottish, Toronto Scottish all common. Next Royal Canadian Regiment Guelphic crown, pre First WW. scarcer badge. Lanark and Renfrew Scottish (now an artillery regiment) Governor General's Horse Guards, Royal Winnipeg Regiment collars, one a CEF collar with the numeral removed. Again, all look good and all except the RCR badge are common.
Sixth set. Collar 6 Hussars, Governor General's Foot Guards, New Brunswick Rangers collar (maybe officer's), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (these are known to be repro'd, but I can't tell from the image.), 1st Canadian Motor Machine Gun Brigade, depending on the size a cap badge or collar, scarcer badge and looks good. Last one Canadian Machine Gun Corps, looks like a collar. Maybe an officer's service dress example.

Did a bit more digging. I am not that keen on the 1 CMMB badge.
The Tank badge is not Canadian.
