On June 7, 2019 the Government of Canada held the Canadian Battlefields Foundation Ceremony at the Memorial Garden of the Abbaye d’Ardenne to remember the Canadians that fell there 75 years ago. Twenty Canadians from the North Nova Scotia Highlanders, the Sherbrooke Fusiliers and the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders were executed by the 25th Panzer Grenadier Regiment (of the 12th SS Panzer Division) at the Abbaye d’Ardenne. A memorial was erected in the Memorial Garden by a local family, the Vico’s, which now includes a plaque mounted by members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
