The Veterans is a look at Canada's veterans, their experiences during their time of service and what impact it had on them. It covers Veterans from World War II to the present. All branches of the service will be included in this series. By examining this series episode by episode you will discover how Canada's military evolved over the decades into the modern, well trained and highly capable military it is today. You'll hear from those who were directly involved in that transition process. Those interviewed in this series selflessly served to help make this world a better place for everyone. Let us never forget what they had done and how much we owe them.

This project was funded by the Power Workers' Union and the Government of Canada.
