On June 5, 2019 the Government of Canada delegation visited the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France, as part of the ceremonies commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

The Juno Beach Centre is Canada’s Second World War museum and cultural centre located in Normandy, France. The Centre pays homage to the 45,000 Canadians who lost their lives during the War, of which 5,500 were killed during the Battle of Normandy and 359 on D-Day.

Opened in 2003 by Veterans and volunteers, the Centre has a vision to create a permanent memorial to all Canadians who served during the Second World War with a mandate to preserve this legacy for future generations through education and remembrance.
