British Columbia

Location: B.C. Legislature Grounds, Victoria

British Columbia first held a Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in 1998.

Since 1998, the project has been to have a permanent Monument for the Fallen Officers.

On 26 September 2004 that monument was unveiled, called ‘the Bastion’.

The B.C. Memorial Service today is rotated through three different locations in BC. This allows Officers to attend who are some distances away from Victoria. The three sites are: Peace Arch Park in Surrey, Stanley Park in Vancouver, and ‘the Bastion’ in Victoria.

There are currently 94 Police and Peace Officers names on ‘the Bastion’, these names also include Federal Officers who were killed in BC.

Location: Manitoba Legislature, South Side Grounds, Winnipeg

The first Manitoba Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Service was held on Sunday 26 September 2004, hosted by the Manitoba Association of Chiefs of Police.

Previously a Memorial Service was hosted by the Winnipeg Police Service since 2000, and was a Police only Service. In 2002 a park located in Transcona at the East End of Kildare Avenue on Rothshire Drive was named after a fallen Winnipeg Police Officer, Detective Ronald Houston. The Service was held there in 2002, and 2003.

As of 29 November 2005 efforts by the Manitoba Association of Chief’s of Police are ongoing to establish a permanent Memorial site, and Monument, at the Legislature in Winnipeg.

Inspector Gary Walker of the Winnipeg Police Service is heading the project, and results will be turned over to the Manitoba Association of Chief’s of Police. The Memorial will be a Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial.

Prince Edward Island

Location: Prince Edward Island Legislature, Queen’s Square, Charlottetown

The Atlantic Provinces of Canada have for many years held a Police and Peace Officers Memorial Service. The Services were rotated between the Atlantic Provinces annually.

Today there are Provincial Memorials in Prince Edward Island dedicated on 18 September 2005, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and plans in Nova Scotia.

The Prince Edward Island Monument is a Fountain located on Queen’s Square, the grounds around the P.E.I. Legislature.


Newfoundland & Labrador

Planning for the Newfoundland and Labrador Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial began in May 1998 and was completed in 2004. Although the budget for the monument and site was $180,000.00 it could easily have been significantly higher, if it had not been for the generous and free services of our supporters.

On 23 May 2003 the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador proclaimed the last Sunday of every September as Newfoundland and Labrador Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Day.

There are 20 Fallen Officers on this Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial. The Newfoundland and Labrador List also includes Federal Police and Peace Officers who lost their lives in the line of duty in that Province.


Nova Scotia

Location: No decision yet

A Nova Scotia Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Service has been ongoing for some 20 years. The Service is held at the same time as the Canadian Police & Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in Ottawa, in September, and takes place at the N.S. Legislature annually.

Now there is a move to create a permanent Monument in Nova Scotia, since N.S. is the only Atlantic Province that does not have a Monument.

The research is now ongoing, and chaired by Reverend Dr. Cynthia Chenard, Chaplain for the Halifax Regional Police and the RCMP in Nova Scotia.

There are a few sites in Halifax, the Provincial Capital, under consideration currently.

Memorial Monument Project ongoing.
