Project 4: New and inspired sites for major commemorations

New and inspired sites for major commemorations

The NCC will work with Canadian Heritage to find a proper location to celebrate the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which embodies Canada’s diversity. As well, Confederation Square will be renovated for the centennial of the National War Memorial in 2039, in order to increase its symbolic prominence and improve its effectiveness as a gathering place. Finally, the NCC will work with municipalities to create seven symbolic nodes around the Capital core area, at junction points in the roadway, pedestrian and cycling networks, with major installations of national commemorations or public art.
