Canada's D-Day Tribute Campaign

On June 6, 1944, D-Day, 359 Canadians were killed in action on the beaches of Normandy. These men came from communities all across Canada. They lived down your street, worked in your business, and were students at your school. Many were just boys when they went off to war, storming the beach as young as 18. 

This year the Juno Beach Centre commemorates their sacrifice by installing 359 Tribute Markers – one for each fallen soldier – on Juno Beach.

Get together with your students, school, and community to sponsor a Tribute Marker.
