There is only one monument in the world that is dedicated to Peacekeepers - and it is right here in our nation’s capital city - Ottawa. This monument is dedicated to all Canadian Peacekeepers, alive and dead, who have spent time in many areas of conflict around the globe.
Canadian’s are particularily proud of the role our armed forces and RCMP officers play in United Nations missions. Since 1948 Canada has been answering the UN’s call where help is due. Our soldiers do all kinds of jobs; including (but not limited too) policing, election observation, protection of government officials, building new schools and wells, rescue during natural disasters and rebuilding infrastructure afterwards.
