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. If the person you wish to nominate is still serving they will receive their QOV from the base Transition Centre where they are currently posted.
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.
If you wish to make a nomination and are not sure if the individual qualifies, please contact the Regional Representative closest to you for assistance.
