The Greater Victoria Afghanistan Memorial
The Greater Victoria Afghanistan Memorial Project (GVAMP) Society is creating this permanent, public memorial to recognize all members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Public Service of Canada who served their country during the Mission, GVAMP will honour and draw public attention to their service and the Afghanistan Mission. The Memorial will specifically list by name all members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Public Service of Canada who made the supreme sacrifice during the Mission. In addition, the Memorial will recognize the support of families and those who returned with mental and physical wounds.

Remembering, Honouring and Learning
The project will engage youth through public awareness during Canada’s 150th Anniversary year. Under the guidance of GVAMPS’ patron, The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, youth will be encouraged to engage with the project through educational competitions, visits and participation in the unveiling ceremony prior to Remembrance Day 2017. Veterans and the Canadian Armed Forces will also participate in the unveiling of the Memorial.
