The purpose of the Greater Victoria Afghanistan Memorial Project (GVAMP) Society is to create a memorial to honour the 163 Canadians who gave their lives and the over 40,000 who served in Afghanistan to help provide a better future for the children of that country.

Please explore this website and links to learn more about the memorial, the Afghan mission and how you can help the GVAMP Society honour those who served and fell.

The goal is to unveil the monument in Victoria on September 30, 2017.
