National Peacekeepers' Day 2021

August 9, 2021 in Canada

National Peacekeepers' Day is celebrated on August 09, 2021. National Peacekeepers' Day is an official remembrance day for Canadian veterans of military peacekeeping activities. It is officially marked on 9 August of each year and observed on the closest Sunday.

The date was chosen to commemorate 9 August 1974, when nine Canadian peacekeepers serving on UNEF II were killed when their aircraft was shot down over Syria, the highest number of Canadian peacekeepers killed in a single incident. Legislation to make the day an official national day in Canada was passed in June 2008. (With material from: Wikipedia)
