National Peacekeepers Day is celebrated on August 9 as a Canadian holiday designated to remember the brave men and women who lost their lives on a peacekeeping mission when a Syrian missile shot down their plane. Beginning in 1948, Canadian peacekeepers have participated in various humanitarian missions all over the world. Since its inception, more than 125,000 Canadians have provided their services to people in need.

National Peacekeepers Day offers Canadian citizens the opportunity to show support for the men and women who bravely strive to bring international peace and security to the world. The government agencies contributing to this cause include the Canadian Armed Forces, Canadian government officials, municipal police forces, and the Canadian Royal Mounted Police. Through the actions of these Canadian citizens, people worldwide are provided medical aid and basic necessities thanks to the efforts of the Canadian government.

How to Celebrate National Peacekeepers Day

A national ceremony is held in Ottawa each year for Canadians who wish to honour the men and women who devote their lives to these peacekeeping efforts. This ceremony takes place at the Canadian National Peacekeeping Monument. It is organized by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canadian Armed Forces, the Canadian Association of Veterans in United Nations Peacekeeping, and Veterans Affairs Canada. All of these organizations play a significant role in honouring #NationalPeacekeepersDay.
