2022 Veterans’ Week Poster

Service, Courage and Sacrifice. At home, around the world and across generations.

Canadians have a long and proud tradition of military service. Today’s Canadian Armed Forces members serving on land, at sea and in the air carry on the impressive legacy of those who came before them. From the major wars of the first half of the 20th century to fighting in Afghanistan, from overseas peacekeeping operations to helping during floods and forest fires in Canada – the contributions have been many.

Canada’s military is a reflection of our country. People from a broad cross section of our diverse society have served in uniform over the years. Standing up for the rights of everyone – both around the world and here at home – is a reflection of the values we hold dear.

This special commemorative poster features a Royal Canadian Air Force pilot settling into the cockpit of a CF-18 jet fighter at an airbase in Eastern Europe in September 2018. The Canadian Armed Forces have deployed to the region for years as part of Operation REASSURANCE to support our North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies.

This Veterans’ Week, how will you remember the generations of brave Canadians who have put their lives on the line in the cause of peace and freedom?
