||Native Soldiers – Foreign Battlefields
Generations of Canadians have served our country and the world during times of war,military conflict and peace. Through their courage and sacrifice, these men and womenhave helped to ensure that we live in freedom and peace, while also fostering freedom and peace around the world. The Canada Remembers Program promotes a greater understanding of these Canadians’ efforts and honours the sacrifices and achievements of those who have served and those who supported our country on the home front.
The program engages Canadians through the following elements: national and
international ceremonies and events including Veterans’ Week activities, youth learning opportunities, educational and public information materials (including online learning),the maintenance of international and national Government of Canada memorials and cemeteries (including 13 First World War battlefield memorials in France and Belgium),and the provision of funeral and burial services.
Canada’s involvement in the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and
Canada’s efforts during military operations and peace efforts has always been fuelled by a commitment to protect the rights of others and to foster peace and freedom.
Many Canadians have died for these beliefs, and many others have dedicated their lives to these pursuits. This willingness to stand up to protect human rights, freedom and justice remains one of Canada’s defining characteristics in the eyes of the world.
Veterans Affairs Canada encourages all Canadians to learn more about the sacrifices and achievements made by those who served our country, and to help preserve their legacy by passing the torch of Remembrance to future generations of Canadians.
...To you from failing hands we throw The torch, be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
From “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae
