Honorary Member – Members who actively support the goals of the Association but are otherwise not eligible for ordinary or associate membership. Honorary status is conferred by the National Board of Directors. Honorary members are not granted voting privileges.
Eligibility for Ordinary and Associate Membership
Ordinary Membership applies to Canadian Citizens who served with the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces until terminated by the United Nations under conditions other than dishonourable. Either Proof of service or a sponsor’s certification of personal knowledge of that service is required with all application forms.
As approved by the 6th Annual General Meeting of the Association in Calgary on October 18, 1997, Associate membership applies to Canadian citizens who served in mission areas for any period of time as a member of, or in support of, peacekeeping forces, observer groups, action groups, or any other such organizations in which Canadian participation was sanctioned by the Government of Canada and which were not under the auspices of the United Nations. (Eg: MFO Sinai, IFOR, SFOR). The criteria, (including proof or certification of service), rights and obligations of Associate Members are identical to those of Ordinary Members.
