Administrative history

The Korea Veterans Association of Canada was formed in 1974. It is open to Canadians who served in the United Nations forces and Republic of Korea forces in Korea from 1950 to 1955. At its peak it had about 4000 members organized into 60 local branches. It also has a Heritage Unit #1 for at-large members who pay a one-time membership fee. This ensures that the organization will continue to exist until that last member dies. The Association organizes social activities for its members, national reunions, and memorial events in Canada and in Korea; it sponsors student bursaries; and has lobbied the federal government for recognition of Korea veterans. It is a member of the International Federation of Korean War Veterans' Associations.

Custodial history

The collection was collected by volunteers of the PPCLI Association, ca. 1970s-2000s.

Scope and content

The collection consists of programs and photographs of ceremonies, news clippings, correspondence concerning student scholarships and other matters, photographs of battle sites, and a newsletter of a British Korea veterans' organization.
