Canada has a long history of serving in support of peace efforts around the world.
More than 125,000 CAF members have served in international peacekeeping efforts in dozens of countries over the decades. Approximately 130 of them have lost their lives and many more have returned home with physical and psychological wounds.
Canadian peacekeepers have made great contributions, but their sacrifices have been heavy. These brave individuals take their honoured place in our country’s proud military history beside the service members of past generations who took part in the world wars.
