Special Announcement – Location Update


The National Wall of Remembrance Association is pleased to announce that, on 9 July 2019, Kingston City Council voted unanimously in favour of the motion to enable the construction of the National Wall of Remembrance monument in a suitable location in downtown Kingston.

THE PROJECT

This project will create a single place of remembrance for all our fallen heroes - a place that families, friends and the general public can visit and remember. It will incorporate the names of the Canadian fallen in all conflicts of record.

THE PHYSICAL MONUMENT

The monument is comprised of marble towers depicting the conflicts and peace-keeping missions that our Canadian Soldiers have sacrificed their lives in to solidify our Nation. It will be located in downtown Kingston, Ontario.

THE VIRTUAL COMPONENT

The Canadian Fallen is the Virtual Component of the National Wall of Remembrance. It is a tribute to the over 117,000 men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country in times of war and peacekeeping.

A Message from the Chairman


More than 117,000 Canadian men and women serving in the Canadian and Allied armed forces have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that future generations of Canadians live in a free and democratic country. These courageous individuals are buried in cemeteries in Canada, Europe, Russia, South Africa, North Africa, India, Burma, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong. Many have no marked grave, and many were lost at sea.
Our mission is to provide one place of Remembrance, both physical and virtual, as an enduring tribute to these brave souls.
Together, with your support, we will erect a permanent monument to the Fallen in the city of Kingston, Ontario, birthplace of much of Canada’s military history. The virtual component is already alive at www.canadianfallen.ca. We encourage you to visit the site and search for relatives, submit photos and documents relevant to a profile or read in Remembrance Magazine about major conflicts Canadians have been engaged in.
Our secondary objective, after the monument is erected, will be to ensure the long-term sustainability of both the monument and the virtual space. As an Association aligned with the Canadian Armed Forces, we will also be supporting organizations whose mission is to assist veterans and their families.
Together we can get this done.

Sincerely,

Gary Coulter

ABOUT NWORA

Remembering Those Who Sacrificed

Although most of our dead are buried abroad, this project will bring our fallen home. This is not a war memorial – it will not take the place of local cenotaphs or memorials that already exist.  It is a tribute to the many men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.
