Square du Canada

Square du Canada

The Town of Dieppe set aside a small park at the western end of the esplanade called Square du Canada (Canada Square). In its centre is the Dieppe-Canada Monument which features the names of people and events linking Canada and Normandy. Behind it is a plaque commemorating the Dieppe Raid.

The following is a translation of its inscription:

On the 19th of August 1942
on the beaches of Dieppe
our Canadian cousins
marked with their blood
the road to our final liberation
foretelling thus their victorious return
on September 1, 1944.


Square du Canada is located at the western end of the esplanade where boulevard de Verdun, rue Alexandre Dumas and Rue de Sygogne meet.
