Canada and the Vietnam War


Canada did not fight in the Vietnam War and diplomatically it was "officially non-belligerent".[1] The country's troop deployments to Vietnam were limited to a small number of national forces in 1973 to help enforce the Paris Peace Accords.[2] Nevertheless, the war had considerable effects on Canada, while Canada and Canadians affected the war, in return.
