CF BACKGROUNDER DOCUMENTATION
5 June 2000
In 1988, the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United Nations
Peacekeepers in recognition of their collective efforts in the cause of peace for more
than fifty years. This inspired the creation of the Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal
(CPSM), the purpose of which is to recognize all Canadians, including serving and
former members of the Canadian Forces, members of the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police and other police services, and Canadian civilians who contributed to peace on
specific missions. The medal has taken some time to reach the presentation stage, but
as with the creation of any major honour or award, the approval of this award involved
consultation with a large number of interested individuals and groups.
