The National Veterans Week Speakers Program set to unveils its CAF speaker video series

November 2, 2020 – Defence Stories


75th Anniversary of the End of the Second World War
Veterans’ Week – November 5-11

As we approach Veterans’ Week (Nov 5-11), the National Veterans’ Week Speakers Program (NVWSP) is proud to unveil its CAF speaker’s video series!

In lieu of in-person presentations, the CAF speaker video series was developed to meet the demand for speakers while keeping our CAF members and Canadians engaged at a distance.

These videos pay tribute to all veterans, past and present, who have served their country. The series will help mark important events such as the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the most recent mission: the fight against COVID-19.

We hope you enjoy the CAF speaker videos we developed and check out our partner’s sites to help you prepare for your own Veterans’ Week / Remembrance Day activities.

It is especially important this Veterans’ Week to take a moment to remember those who have served and continue to serve to keep Canadians and Canada safe.
