We are the Friends of the Canadian War Museum – ensuring Canadian’s past sacrifices are never forgotten


The Friends exists to promote, support and assist the Canadian War Museum’s work in preserving the past to enlighten present and future generations about Canada’s military heritage.

Greetings and welcome to the Friends of the Canadian War Museum Website.

We are a charitable organization dedicated to supporting the Canadian War Museum, which is numbered among the best museums in the world. As you can well imagine, charitable organizations such as ours face growing pressures to ensure their ongoing relevance and sustainability. We believe we have a worthwhile cause, and we hope as you browse through our site, you will agree.
