Canadian Rangers are active and engaged members of their communities. They are seen as role models by their peers or looked up to by the younger generation. They are experienced, well-respected, knowledgeable members of the community.
Recently the Canadian Rangers were awarded the Canadian Forces Special Service Medal (SSM) in honour of their valuable contributions to Canadian society, and over the years individual Canadian Rangers have also been recognized for their efforts.
In these pages we invite you to read about Canadian Rangers who have gone beyond the call of duty in order to save lives, improve their communities and protect Canada from perceived threats. We welcome your thoughts and comments in recognition of their truly inspiring efforts to overcome obstacles and challenges in their quest to improve the lives of their neighbours and to make themselves better citizens.
