Quilts of Valour - Eligibility Criteria
Canadian Armed Forces members, past or present, who are ill or injured as a result of their service to Canada, qualify for a Quilt of Valour. Our first priority is to supply the Transition Centres (TC's) across Canada. The TC's assist us by presenting Quilts of Valour (QOV) to injured service members.
Some examples of members who automatically qualify for a QOV are those who served in: WWII, Korea, Bosnia, Rwanda, and the Gulf Wars. There are many other areas of violent conflicts/theatres of war (e.g. Afghanistan), peacekeeping missions and general regular/reserve duty in which members, past and present, may have suffered injury/illness as a result of their service, including duty within Canada and abroad.
Injured members, past or present, are eligible to receive only one QOV.
We have stopped our Quilt presentations and Sew Days due to recent COVID-19 developments. We will continue to accept Quilt Nominations for future presentations once things resume. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
