Library and Archives Canada: Military Personnel Records Unit
Children of Canadian military personnel deceased for more than 20 years can have limited access to their father's or mother's military records provided they have proof of relationship and / or obituary. The proof of relationship is a birth certificate with father's name included (which is often not available to War Children unfortunately). Living military personnel can also access their own files.
Many provincial archives can help you trace birth, death and marriages for Canadian servicemen in their respective provinces.
Newspapers of the day printed the names, rank and destination of returning servicemen and women. If you know where your serviceman or woman was destined in Canada, you can trace his or her arrival through the newspapers which are available in Microfilm.
