Canadians are proud of their military heritage, but as time passes, it is critical that we not forget the sacrifices made by Veterans in the fields of Belgium, to the mountains of Afghanistan, and beyond. Not nearly enough is known about the extraordinary contributions of modern Veterans or the contributions of Canada’s women, Indigenous, racialized, and LGBTQ2 Veterans. We have an obligation to make sure they receive the honour and recognition they deserve.
To ensure that the legacies of those who have served live on, a re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Support Commemorate Canada and ensure this program recognizes modern Veterans as well as women, Indigenous, racialized, and LGBT2Q Veterans from all conflicts.
  • Ensure that we recognize the valuable contributions of Canadian Armed Forces Veterans who have served our country in domestic operations such as wildfires, ice storms, and floods.
