Canadian Veterans are ordinary men and women who did extraordinary things. During Veterans' Week, we not only pay tribute to all Canadian Veterans, we honour those who continue to serve our country today in Afghanistan and other areas of conflict.

This Veterans' Week Canadians will come together to honour those who have sacrificed so much to make our world a safer place. This Veterans' Week, how will you remember? Learn more at www.vac-acc.gc.ca.
