Canada was not directly involved in this war but it did have a role. Canada provided intelligence info to the USA, allowed companies in Canada to supply weapons used in the war, contributed money to South Vietnam, and supported, for a short time, American air attacks on North Vietnam.
The estimate of Canadians who fought with American forces in the Vietnam War is 10,000.
