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. I hope you all continue to remain safe and well under what are more trying circumstances than those which existed even a short month ago. As you can well imagine, charitable organizations such as our own face growing pressures to ensure their relevance and sustainability. Finally, stay with us! As mentioned, the external pressures are great and will likely remain with us for some time to come. We have a worthwhile cause and in spite of the pressures we continue to support the Museum.

I want to thank you personally for your continuing support.

Robert Hamilton, President FCWM•AMCG
