What we do?

The programme was set up as:

The Canada Memorial Foundation has its origins in a Letter to the Editor published in a British newspaper in 1988 suggesting a monument in memory of the contribution of Canadians to World War I and World War II. By 1991 the Foundation has been set up, mostly on the initiative of Canadian-British businessman Conrad Black, and the first scholarships were awarded. Canadian students were given grants to study in the UK and British students to study in Canada. In 1992 the same Canada Memorial Foundation invited Canadian artists to participate in a competition to build a permanent memorial.
On the 3rd of June 1994 a memorial was unveiled in Green Park, London by Queen Elizabeth II. It is built from hundreds of pieces of stone cut from granite on Anticosti Island in the Gulf of the St Lawrence River and bronze castings made in Invemess, Quebec.
