Canada Army Run is proud to announce our new finish line at the National War Memorial. Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, this iconic landmark will greet you at the end of your 5K or 10K journey. It brings together the unique features of a Canada Army Run event, with the importance and symbolism of military history and culture.

Unveiled in 1939, it is a symbol that honours Canadians who fought and sacrificed in war. It also includes the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and is the site of the national Remembrance Day ceremony.

A special thank you to our partners at Veterans Affairs Canada, the City of Ottawa, The NCC, and all of our valued partners who have helped make this possible.

We invite you to take part in this historic year, and hope to see you cross the Finish Line with us on September 18!

La Course de l’Armée du Canada est fière d’annoncer la nouvelle ligne d’arrivée au Monument commémoratif de guerre du Canada. Situé au cœur du centre-ville d’Ottawa, ce point d’intérêt emblématique vous accueillera à la fin de votre épreuve du 5 km ou du 10 km. Il réunit à la fois les points d’intérêt caractéristiques d’une activité de la Course de l’Armée du Canada et l’importance et le symbolisme de l’histoire et de la culture militaire.

Dévoilé en 1939, ce monument représente un symbole qui rend hommage aux Canadiens ayant combattu durant la guerre et qui se sont sacrifiés. À cet endroit, où est célébrée la cérémonie nationale du jour du Souvenir, on trouve également la Tombe du soldat inconnu.

Nous souhaitons remercier nos partenaires : Anciens Combattants Canada, la ville d’Ottawa, la CCN et tous nos autres précieux partenaires qui ont rendu ceci possible.

Nous vous invitons à prendre part à cette année historique et nous espérons que vous franchirez la ligne d’arrivée avec nous le 18 septembre!

Battle of the Atlantic: A U-boat hunter remembers

Battle of the Atlantic: A U-boat hunter remembers


They’d be there when Able Seaman Elmer Auld landed on the bridge for his early-morning watch aboard the corvette Giffard—seven U-boats somewhere out in the mid-Atlantic, beyond the cover of air patrols, in an area known as “The Black Hole.”

Then, almost as if they had waited for his arrival on deck, the German wolf packs would disappear beneath the waves and “it”—the hunt—was on.



Unfit for action overseas during WW I, Albert Goodwin fought at home for workers’ rights


Albert Goodwin, known as “Ginger,” due to his red hair, emigrated to Canada in 1906 and began working in a mine on Vancouver Island.

The company Goodwin worked for paid white miners about $4 a day, support workers less and Chinese workers a fraction of that.



Learn About The Meaning Behind Stem To Stone!

An item from the folks at Wreaths Across America.


Here at Wreaths Across America headquarters, preparations are being made for our annual summer weekend event, Stem to Stone. The WHY for this gathering is to highlight that Wreaths Across America is not just an event but an experience, and in fact for some has become a way of life. This concept was shared more eloquently in a poem written by longtime volunteer Location Coordinator Jill Harris from Crownsville Veterans’ Cemetery in Maryland. Read it by clicking on the button below.

Thank you, Jill, and all the volunteers that make the mission to Remember, Honor, Teach a reality in your own communities. You, the volunteers and supporters, are Stem to Stone and in working together we not only share history and instill accountability for freedom in our children, we also set the example of the power of one.

With Gratitude,


Karen Worcester, Executive Director
