Cyprus Memorial - Petawawa

The 1974 war in Cyprus was a turning point in the Mediterranean conflict and for Canada’s long-standing commitment to United Nations operations. Traditional peacekeeping shifted to the new reality of peacemaking.

It was a deadly time in Canada’s peacekeeping history, with casualties in Cyprus, including Para Perron and Para Berger, and the loss of UN Flight 51 over Syria.

On the 50 anniversary of the 1974 conflict, this memorial is dedicated to the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who served and sacrificed to bring peace in Cyprus, and around the world.
