Presentation of Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medals - 21 April 2001

The Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal was announced on 29 June 2000, and continues to be awarded to Canadians who have been deployed outside Canada on peacekeeping or observer missions, as part of a United Nations or International Force, for a minimum of 30 days (not necessarily consecutive). The first awards of this medal were made to the Calgary Highlanders during the annual Freedom of the City parade on 21 April 2001.  His Worship Al Duerr, Mayor of the City of Calgary, made the presentations.

The medal follows in the tradition of other awards such as the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal (CVSM) which was instituted in the Second World War for service in the armed forces, and the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal for Korea, instituted for service during the Korean War.
