Miniature circular silvered medal on scroll and ribbon bar suspension; the face with a maple leaf centrally within a laurel wreath; the reverse with the crowned cipher of Queen Elizabeth II circumscribed ‘SPECIAL SERVICE SPÉCIAL’; diameter 19.14mm (0.75 inch); on original ribbon with slip-on JUGOSLAVIJA clasp.

The medal was instituted on 16 June 1984 to be awarded to members of the Canadian armed forces for ‘service under exceptional circumstances in a specifically defined location for an established period of time, but need not be in a theatre of active operations’.  The Medal is always issued with a clasp which specifies the special service recognised by the award of the Medal.

The Jugoslavija clasp was authorised on 9 March 1993 for a minimum of 90 days of honourable service with the European Community Monitor Mission in Yugoslavia (ECMMY) between 4 September 1991 and the end of the mission.  Interestingly, the clasp was never actually issued, being revoked and superseded by the European Community Monitor Mission Medal.
