The Ottawa South African War Monument found in Confederation Park is one of many South African War monuments that have been erected across Canada to commemorate this war. This monument lists the names of 16 men from the area who gave their lives in the 1899 to 1902 conflict and it was paid for with a penny drive by 30,000 children from the city and neighbouring counties.
