History information

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission built the Quebec Memorial in the Montreal Pointe Claire National Field of Honour to commemorate the Commonwealth war burials in the Province of Quebec whose graves can no longer be marked or maintained. The Memorial consists of two large blocks of granite, as well as a walkway from Currie Circle.

The National Field of Honour was established in 1930 and is operated by the Quebec Branch of the Last Post Fund as a permanent memorial of gratitude to Canadian and Allied veterans who served their country in time of war. Overlooking Lake St. Louis, it has at its entrance the impressive Gate of Remembrance and Memorial Chapel.
