National Inventory of Canadian Military Memorials
Canadians have long served their country by participating in numerous wars and conflicts. Over the years, individual citizens, veterans organizations and service clubs have raised thousands of memorials across the country to honour those sailors, soldiers, airmen and women who made great sacrifices towards the restoration of world peace and served their country so well.
In keeping with our proud military heritage, Canadians erected cenotaphs in municipal centres, raised monuments in parks, cemeteries and public areas. Church members have mounted plaques and stained glass windows as memorials, and cairns and fountains have been constructed as important landmarks marking various military involvement. All of this is done to mark the service of family, friends and comrades, and to ensure that these important and not so well known battles and events form part of our communal memory.
