Created on 1 January 1993, Military Valour Decorations are national honours awarded in recognition of acts of valour, self-sacrifice, or devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.

Eligibility and Criteria

A person is eligible to be awarded a Military Valour Decoration if that person, on or after 1 January, 1993, is:

  • a member of the Canadian Armed Forces; or
  • a member of an allied armed force that is serving with or in conjunction with the Canadian Armed Forces.

The Victoria Cross shall be awarded for the most conspicuous bravery, a daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty, in the presence of the enemy.


Bars
Each subsequent award of the Cross shall be indicated by a plain bronze bar ornamented with laurel leaves. The bar shall be attached to the centre of the ribbon from which the Cross is suspended, and where two or more bars are attached, those bars shall be equally spaced on the ribbon.
