Informal request for military service files of former members of the Canadian Armed Forces after 1919


  • To locate a file, we require surname, full given name(s), date of birth and/or service number or social insurance number.
  • If you do not have that information, secondary information (e.g., the names of next of kin, postings, dates of service, or place of enlistment) can assist in identifying the correct individual.
  • Please specify the documents you require. If you are doing family history research, we recommend that you request a "genealogy package," which will include copies of selected documents from the file that highlight/summarize the individual's service.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-613-996-5115, toll free at 1-866-578-7777, or by e-mail at
