Since the country’s modern founding in 1867, the Canadian government has deployed soldiers of the Canadian military to seven officially recognized armed combats around the world.
The start dates represent the initial authorization of war, either by the British Empire, Canadian government, or United Nations, while the end dates represent the formal signing of a peace treaty or armistice.
The names of Canada’s war dead are recorded in various Canadian Books of Remembrance, which are kept in a special chamber of the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa and are maintained by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Note that the Canadian military has participated in combat and peacekeeping engagements other than the officially-recognized seven conflicts above, including some where Canadian soldiers have been killed. According to Veteran’s Affairs, over 1,800 members of the Canadian armed forces have died “in the service of Canada” since 1947, excluding those who died in the Korean War.
