The monument

AMICITIA France-Canada is the national monument that is erected in Ottawa at the Beechwood National Cemetery to recognize more than four centuries of shared history and heritage and over 90 years of official diplomatic relations between France and Canada.

Beyond the timeless memorial, Amicitia wants to entrust to future generations, through their civic engagement, the mission of keeping alive our unique fraternal friendship between France and Canada.
