NRCan Launches new interactive Map honouring Canadians who fought for our freedom and democracy

Many places throughout our country are named to remember the actions of Canadians in the defence of freedom and democracy. This interactive map shows how we remember them – eternally tying them to the lands, lakes, rivers and towns for which they made the ultimate sacrifice.

The 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. The map represents ongoing efforts to memorialize Canadians that have played notable roles in Canada’s war and peacekeeping efforts.
