Toronto Remembers


City of Toronto War Memorials

Communities across Toronto have a long tradition of honouring the soldiers who fought for our freedom. Each of the former cities, as well as some earlier villages, often had their own memorial or cenotaph. 


The Great War

In commemoration of the anniversary of the First World War, Museums & Heritage Services invites the public to special events, exhibits and initiatives that honour the service and sacrifice of the many Canadians who fought for their country.

Commemorating D-Day, June 6

Each June 6, the City of Toronto honours the Canadian men and women who took part in D-Day - the Allied forces' invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. 

Street signs across the City were unveiled that pay tribute to fallen veterans from Toronto.

Street sign tributes

Starting in fall 2008, a number of street signs across Toronto were unveiled that pay tribute to fallen soldiers from Toronto. These street signs have a poppy incorporated into their design.
