Did You Know? 
  • More than 80,000 Canadians have served in the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces.
  • In 1988, the United Nations Peacekeepers were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 40 years of tireless effort to keep the peace between warring factions. This monument commemorates the Canadian contribution to those missions.

Honouring Canada's Peacekeepers

The United Nations Peacekeeping Forces were formed in 1948, in the aftermath of the Second World War. Canada has played a pivotal role in many peacekeeping missions, supplying the people and equipment needed to make these efforts successful.

Designed by sculptor Jack Harman, urban designer Richard Henriquez and landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander, The Reconciliation illustrates the role of peacekeepers, keeping the peace to allow time for reconciliation to take place.
