D-Day 75th Anniversary - on June 6, 1944, Allied troops consisting of Canadian, British, and American forces made history as soldiers landed on five beaches along 80 kilometers of the heavily fortified coast of France's Normandy Region. Of the nearly 150,00 Allied troops, 14,000 were Canadians. On D-Day, Canadians suffered 1,074 casualties including 359 who were killed.

The memory lives on! Join us in reflecting on one of the most pivotal battles of all time at our 75th Anniversary D-Day Gala - a momentous occasion to celebrate peace, liberty and reconciliation.
