The HKVCA acknowledges the past and present harms of colonization on the Indigenous peoples in Canada. Among the injustices suffered by them was that many Indigenous veterans of Canada's military did not receive the same honours, benefits or assistance as did non-Indigenous veterans. We are committed to working to understand the injustices and to educating our members and the general public about them. The HKVCA is working to identify and recognize the Indigenous veterans of 'C' Force. Honouring them in our Association and learning their stories is a step on the path to reconciliation.
We invite you to visit our List of Indigenous Veterans and Resources page to learn more.
