This website is dedicated to the memory of the tremendous Canadian contribution in both World Wars, and a place of remembrance for all our fallen since 1914.
 
Too many fought and died for us to ever forget. Sacrifices made by those Canadians must not be forgotten. That is my goal, this is my inspiration:

Canadian Military Personnel Killed
First World War: 66,665
Second World War: 46,998
Korea: 516
Peacekeeping: 121
Afghanistan: 157
On October 2 throughout our military history during World War I, World War II and Korea, a total of 419 men and women died in the service of Canada. Every day is a day of remembrance.

Now Remembering
M. HAMBLIN, Flying Officer - 1944
E. HUGHES, Corporal - 1952
R. BOUSKILL, Flight Lieutenant - 1944
A. BLAIS, Private - 1918
G. FENNELL, Corporal - 1943
A. BEISIG, Trooper - 1943
A. STRODE, Private - 1916
Canadians relied on photos and footage for information and inspiration during the war. Today, they provide us with an invaluable historical record of the war and those who fought it.

In order to open the port of Antwerp to Allied shipping, thus easing logistical burdens in their supply lines (stretching hundreds of miles from Normandy eastward to the Siegfried Line), the First Canadian Army assaults and captures the Scheldt at a cost of more than 6,000 casualties, including 2,200 killed.
