An additional 7,000 Canadians served between the signing of the armistice and the end of 1955. In proportion to its population, Canada’s troop contribution was one of the largest of the international force. In total, 516 brave Canadians made the ultimate sacrifice.  South Korea remains one of Canada’s most trusted allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific Region.
