Peacekeeping Monument

The Peacekeeping Monument in Ottawa is the first monument in the world dedicated to peacekeeping. This special monument honours both the living and the dead.

Since 1948, more than 110,000 Canadian peacekeepers have served in areas of conflict around the world. On the monument, three peacekeepers – two men and a woman – stand on two sharp, knifelike edges of stone, which artistically symbolize cutting through the rubble and debris of war and resolving conflict.
