The International Day of UN Peacekeepers is a United Nations observance day that honors the memory of uniformed peacekeepers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The day celebrates the commitment and dedication of the more than 100,000 peacekeepers from over 120 countries who serve in UN missions around the world. This day was first established by the UN General Assembly in 2002 to coincide with the anniversary of the creation of the first UN peacekeeping mission in 1948. Canada has a long and proud history of contributing to international peacekeeping missions. Over the years, Canada has sent over 125,000 personnel to serve as UN peacekeepers in some of the world's most dangerous and challenging environments. The UN Peacekeeping forces have saved countless lives and played a pivotal role in ending conflicts in many war-torn countries, including Rwanda, Bosnia, and Kosovo. Every year, the day is marked by ceremonies and events around the world to honor the sacrifices of peacekeepers and to reaffirm the importance of international peacekeeping in promoting global stability and security. The International Day of UN Peacekeepers is observed annually on May 29th.
