(LESTER PEARSON & THE SUEZ CRISIS) As a result of his actions in leading the Canadian forces to ultimately resolve the conflict known as the Suez Crisis and for his innovation of peacekeeping Lester B. Pearson was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. Since then Canada has still abided by the UN's main goal of maintaining international peace and security and developing friendly relations amongst nations. This is quite evident considering the fact that Canada has participated in almost every United Nations peacekeeping mission and most missions benefit our forces. Over 125, 000 Canadians have participated in over 50 peacekeeping missions for the United Nations.

Canada has been a member of the Security Council since 1946; 2010 was the first time that Canada did not make the Security Council. (The United Nations and Canada's Role) There are also many individual Canadians whom have represented Canada's independence through their actions. A Canadian lawyer whose name was John Peters Humphrey partially drafted the UN charter and 50 years ago he was also the main author of the Universal Declaration of Humans Rights.
