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. 


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.

Quilt Presentations are ongoing as Public Health measures permit throughout Canada. We continue to accept nominations for future presentations. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through the changing restrictions.
