We remember

They stood up and fought for us. Today we honour the memory and the sacrifice of our brave veterans.

After the Great War, Canada was never the same. More than 600,000 of a population of barely eight million served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Of those, 60,000 were killed and another 154,000 wounded.
Do you know someone who enlisted in World War I?

Search the WWI CEF database

Do you know a Canadian killed while serving his country?

Search Commonwealth War Graves database

My wife's grandfather (in the kilt) was wounded by German shelling and carried around shrapnel from WWI the rest of his life.
