We are a nation of peacekeepers.

Over the past seven decades, more than 125,000 Canadian peacekeepers have participated in dozens of international efforts all around the world to restore and maintain peace. They have been instrumental in achieving these goals.

In this series, you’ll hear from Canadians who have served on peacekeeping missions and how they proudly served with compassion and courage.

    Every year in Canada, we commemorate National Peacekeepers Day on August 9th. That’s why next month, Veterans Affairs Canada will be back with a brand new Faces of Freedom podcast series.

    Every Tuesday in August, you’ll hear stories from Canadian peacekeepers in your podcast feed. More than 125,000 Canadians have served on peacekeeping missions around the world in the last seven decades, in places like Haiti, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Balkans and many more.

    We hope you tune in next month and learn more about them, their missions, and the impact of their efforts. You don’t want to miss these stories. Make sure to keep an eye on your feed this summer, and share with your friends and family.

    We’ll see you in a few weeks.
