“Service, Courage and Sacrifice. At home, around the world and across generations.
Canadian military members have a long tradition of defending peace and helping others. “

Every year, Veterans Affairs Canada commissions a poster for Veterans’ Week. The posters represent Canada’s sacrifices and achievements in keeping peace and helping others.

2021 Veterans Affair poster featuring a soldier in Afghanistan, a peacekeeper in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, an armed forces member carrying a sandbag to hold back floodwaters, an infantry member helping a wounded comrade in 1950s Korea, an aviator in Qatar during the Persian Gulf War, a signaler in the hills of 1940s Hong Kong, and a pair of soldiers in the Somme Valley in France during the First World War.

This year’s poster features a soldier in Afghanistan, a peacekeeper in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, an armed forces member carrying a sandbag to hold back floodwaters, an infantry member helping a wounded comrade in 1950s Korea, an aviator in Qatar during the Persian Gulf War, a signaler in the hills of 1940s Hong Kong, and a pair of soldiers in the Somme Valley in France during the First World War.

All people braver than I, helping others and striving for peace.
