On May 5, 2001, the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, Her Honour Mrs. Hillary Weston unveiled the Canadian Women's Army Corps Memorial Monument. This memorial honours the women who served in the CWAC between 1941 and 1945. It also lists those who died while on service. The monument has a 6'4" high bronze figure which depicts a young CWAC member as she might have looked when "stepping out" on a pass in town during her basic training course at the wartime Kitchener Training Centre. The unveiling was attended by some 1,500 CWAC veterans and relatives, the Mayor of Kitchener, the local Member of Parliament, Minister of National Defence representative, Chief of Defence Staff representative, the sculptor (André Gauthier of Orleans, Ontario) and the Artcast Inc. Foundry representatives.
