The images on the left are of the Vigil Memorial when it was set up in the Hall of Honour in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa while on display in 2014. 


This exhibit travelled across Canada during 2014 so that Canadians had the opportunity to pay their respects to the men and women who gave their lives in the line of duty. The Afghanistan Vigil Memorial will be housed in it's own building at the new National Defence Headquarters in Kanata so that people may visit and pay their respects. The building is scheduled for completion in 2017/2018.


There are a total of 158 Canadian soldiers, 3 civilians and 43 US soldiers represented on the cenotaph.
