Commemorative Ceremony
June 3, 2019

Join us for a special event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy by remembering those who have traded in their civilian shoes for combat boots to serve in times of war, military conflict and peace.

Combat boots—as symbols of all Canadians who served during the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy—will take the train journey of remembrance across Canada this spring.

This event marks the end of the train journey across Canada and the departure point for many of our soldiers heading to war.

The Government of Canada invites the official delegation and the public to take part in this ceremony as part of the 75th anniversary commemorations for D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.
