Victory in Europe (V-E) Day
May 8, 1945

Victory in Europe (V-E) Day was celebrated by crowds in Canada, Europe and many Allied Nations around the world to mark the official end of the Second World War in Europe.

More than 1,000,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders served in the Second World War—and more than 45,000 gave their lives.

Thank you for your bravery and service in defense of our peace and freedom.
