Canadians have long served their country by participating in numerous wars and conflicts. Over the years, individual citizens, veterans organizations and service clubs have raised thousands of memorials across the country to honour those sailors, soldiers, airmen and women who made great sacrifices towards the restoration of world peace and served their country so well. In keeping with our proud military heritage, Canadians erected cenotaphs in municipal centres, raised monuments in parks, cemeteries and public areas. Church members have mounted plaques and stained glass windows as memorials, and cairns and fountains have been constructed as important landmarks marking various military involvement.
The purpose of the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (CVWM) is to recognize and keep alive the memory of the achievements and sacrifices made by those who served Canada in the defence of freedom and so have contributed to the development of Canada as a nation. The virtual memorial also contains images of individual Canadians and their experiences. You are invited to send us digital images of photographs and memorabilia relevant to Canada's war dead. The names found in the Canadian Virtual War Memorial are those found in the Books of Remembrance.
In accordance with the Veterans Affairs Canada Evaluation Plan (2011-2016) approved by the Departmental Evaluation Committee, the Audit and Evaluation Division was tasked with conducting the evaluation of the Memorials and Cemetery/Grave Maintenance Program. The Memorials and Cemetery/Grave Maintenance Program preserves the memory of deceased Canadians who served their country during war and peace by maintaining symbols of remembrance in perpetuity. This includes responsibility for the 14 memorials to the First and Second World Wars in Europe, the graves of Canadian war dead all over the world, the graves of Veterans and some others buried at the expense of Canada located throughout the world, and two departmental Veterans’ cemeteries in Canada. Two unique memorials to those who died in service to Canada, the Books of Remembrance and the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (CVWM) are also maintained through this program.
The evaluation of the Community War Memorial Program (CWMP) was conducted to address the requirement for full evaluation coverage, as per the Financial Administration Act and Treasury Board's 2009 Directive on the Evaluation Function. An evaluation of the CWMP was also required prior to its specified end date of March 31, 2015 to inform future decision-making on this program, or similar programs within the Government of Canada. The purpose of the Program is to provide a method through which VAC can extend its reach in delivering its mandate regarding commemorative activities. The Program provides non-repayable contributions of up to 50% of the total project costs associated with building a new cenotaph/monument or a major addition to an existing one to a maximum of $50,000 per project.
