About the Canadian Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day
On September 24, 1998 the Government of Canada officially proclaimed the last Sunday of September of every year as Canadian Police and Peace Officers' Memorial Day. The event gives Canadians an opportunity each year to formally express appreciation for the dedication of police and peace officers who died in the line of duty, making the ultimate tragic sacrifice to keep our communities safe.
