Royal Canadian Navy Monument


This monument was created as an enduring legacy to the Royal Canadian Navy, in honour of its centennial celebrated in 2010.

Since its establishment, the Navy has been instrumental in protecting and preserving Canada's sovereignty, not only by safeguarding our maritime approaches, but also by representing our interests in international waters. This monument commemorates the contributions and sacrifices of the men and women in naval uniform who have served and continue to serve Canada at sea in times of peace and war. Their contribution will not be forgotten.

Artist: Al McWilliams
Architects: Joost Bakker and Bruce Haden
Getting to this monument to view it may be somewhat tricky. Going west on Wellington Street take the first right turn immediately after passing the Portage Bridge. Going east on Wellington take the first left after Lett Street. Park in the parking lot for the Mill St. Brew Pub.

Walk north east along the path. Do not cross the foot bridge over the water. You will soon come upon the monument.
