Thank you everyone for giving tribute to our past and present Veterans,RCMP and First Responders as well as your continued support of Veterans Voices of Canada!

Our trademark,copyrighted VVOC – Flags of Remembrance is the brainchild of VVOC Founder, Al Cameron. This initiative is designed to pay tribute to our Veterans,RCMP and First Responders in a visually stunning display of patriotism and Remembrance. Every year at our opening ceremony, 128 full size, official Canadian flags are raised along major roadways and other highly visible locations in participating communities. These flags represent the 128,000 Canadians military and RCMP killed and missing in action of the approximately 116,000 Canadians killed in armed conflict from the Boer War to the present, as well as the approximately 12,000 soldiers missing in action. In addition, a total of 234 officers with the RCMP and its predecessor the Northwest Mounted Police, who have died in the line of duty.  This is the first year we will be giving tribute to our First Responders and all they sacrifice,many who served in our Canadian Forces. Each flag is accompanied by a sponsored “Honour Plaque” in tribute or remembrance to past or current serving personnel.This Honour Plaque recognizes and honours individuals given tribute to by family, friends or others who would like to recognize those who sacrifice so much.

A key factor to making our tribute unique is how all flags are raised from coast to coast at the same moment(12 noon-AB Mountain Time),unifying all branch locations, tributes and participating Canadians at each site on that day.

The flags and plaques are raised each fall and taken down on November 12th. The opening and closing ceremonies will be held on a date to be announced here and within other social media. All ceremonies  will take place on the same day at each of our tribute communities across Canada.

This annual, national event also serves as Veterans Voices of Canada’s primary fundraiser. Monies raised through our VVOC – Flags of Remembrance tributes are used to fulfill the mandate of the VVOC organization: Giving honour and tribute to our Veterans through historical on camera documentation,as well as historical displays tributes across Canada throughout the year. Funds will also be used for other Veterans Voices of Canada Veteran support initiatives throughout the year.We are proud to say we also donate a portion of the funds raised to other well deserving charities located in each of the communities where we display and hold our tributes.We are asking a minimum donation of $250 per Honour Plaque and $500 for business sponsorships. One name per Honour Plaque please.Thank you everyone for all of your past and future support!
