Wall of Remembrance

Wall of Remembrance memorial

The Korea Veterans Association of Canada erected a Wall of Remembrance to the 516 Canadians who are commemorated in the Korean War Book of Remembrance.

The Wall was dedicated on July 27, 1997 and is located at Brampton, Ontario's Meadowvale Cemetery. The Korea veterans, present for the unveiling, marched to the site to pay homage to their fallen comrades. The Wall of Remembrance is about 200-feet long, two-feet high and curves on a slope with plaques of the names of those who died. Together 26,791 Canadians served in the Korea War and approximately 7,000 continued to serve in the theatre between the ceasefire and the end of 1955.

Wall of Remembrance Plaques

For many Canadians, the account of hostilities in Korea is the story of land forces combating not only enemy forces, but hills, swamps, rice fields, torrential rains and snow. However, it must be appreciated that every phase of the Korea campaign was a combined operation in which United Nations forces on the sea and in the air played a prominent and vital role.


The Wall of Remembrance is located in the Meadowvale Cemetery at 7732 Mavis Road, Brampton, Ontario.
