Canada’s Commemorative Map This interactive map commemorates Canada’s participation in armed conflicts at home and abroad by highlighting a sample of the many geographical features and places named for those that served our country. These commemorative geographical names help us remember war casualties, soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen, military leaders, and civilians recognized or decorated for outstanding acts of bravery and sacrifice in battle. These names also commemorate notable battles in which Canada participated, and Canadian military units, regiments, squadrons, and ships in which Canadians served. Federal, provincial and territorial members of the Geographical Names Board of Canada provided these commemorative names for the development of the map. Many more commemorative place names exist in Canada, and will be added in future releases of this evergreen interactive map. If you would like to contribute names to this project, please contact the Geographical Names Board of Canada Secretariat at Natural Resources Canada. 2018-11-02 2018-11-21 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.geonames-toponymes.rncan@canada.ca MilitaryCanadaGNBCwar casualtiesWarCommemoration Canada’s Commemorative Map (Story Map)HTML http://maps.canada.ca/journal/content-en.html?appid=3f3247733f244707bb77cd94a3c5ff2f&appidalt=255b1d3aaba446e5b2406977db503f22&locale=en Canada’s Commemorative Map (Story Map)HTML http://cartes.canada.ca/journal/content-fr.html?appid=255b1d3aaba446e5b2406977db503f22&appidalt=3f3247733f244707bb77cd94a3c5ff2f&locale=fr Canada’s Commemorative MapFGDB/GDB http://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/Commemoration_Commemoration/canada_commemorative_map/CCW_CCG.gdb.zip Canada’s Commemorative MapMXD http://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/Commemoration_Commemoration/canada_commemorative_map/CCM_CCC_EN.mxd Canada’s Commemorative MapMXD http://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/Commemoration_Commemoration/canada_commemorative_map/CCM_CCC_FR.mxd Canada’s Commemorative MapESRI REST https://webservices.maps.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/NRCan/CCM_CCC_EN/MapServer/0 Canada’s Commemorative MapESRI REST https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/NRCan/CCM_CCC_FR/MapServer/0 Canada's Commemorative MapWMS https://webservices.maps.canada.ca/arcgis/services/NRCan/CCM_CCC_EN/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Canada’s Commemorative MapWMS https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/services/NRCan/CCM_CCC_FR/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
