Juno Beach Centre Saved! | Centre Juno Beach sauvĂ© !

This announcement came earlier today, but is welcome news.


In March 2022, the Juno Beach Centre publicly announced that its long-term viability was being threatened by a proposed condominium development on the land next to the museum. Today, we are happy to announce that a settlement has been reached between the JBC and the French developer. No condos will be built adjacent to the Juno Beach Centre.

With Canadian Thanksgiving coming this weekend, it is only appropriate that we express our deep gratitude to the Government of Canada, the town of Courseulles-sur-Mer, the French Government, the Région Normandie, the Départment du Calvados, and the Intercommunalité Cœur de Nacre for making this settlement possible.

Thanks most of all to you – the public – for your unwavering support. Your consideration, advocacy and assistance have saved the Juno Beach Centre.

En mars 2022, le Centre Juno Beach a annoncĂ© publiquement que sa viabilitĂ© Ă  long terme Ă©tait menacĂ©e par un projet de dĂ©veloppement d’immeubles sur le terrain Ă  cĂ´tĂ© du musĂ©e. Nous sommes heureux d’annoncer qu’un accord a Ă©tĂ© conclu entre la CJB et le promoteur français. Le projet de dĂ©veloppement d’immeubles Ă  cĂ´tĂ© du CJB ne se poursuivra pas. 

Ă€ l’approche de jour d’action de grâce canadienne ce week-end, nous voudrions exprimer notre profonde gratitude au Gouvernement du Canada, Ă  la ville de Courseulles-sur-Mer, au Gouvernement de la France, Ă  la RĂ©gion Normandie, au DĂ©partement du Calavdos et Ă  l’IntercommunalitĂ© CĹ“ur de Nacre pour avoir rendu cet accord possible.

Merci surtout à vous – le public – pour votre soutien indéfectible. Votre considération, votre plaidoyer et votre aide ont sauvé le Centre Juno Beach.

French developer plans condo complex on Juno Beach

An item from the Legion Magazine that may be of particular interest to members.  Note that the Juno Beach Centre themselves are less concerned with the development itself, and more concerned with the fact that the developers will need to use the sole road to the commemorative centre during the building process – effectively choking off any traffic to the historic and memorial sites.

French developer plans condo complex on Juno Beach

STORY BY STEPHEN J. THORNE

A French developer is planning to build a 70-unit condominium at the site where Canadian troops landed on D-Day, desecrating what opponents to the project are calling hallowed ground.

Local authorities in Courseulles-sur-Mer awarded a construction permit for Domaine des Dunes in February 2019. The two four-storey buildings are to go up just metres from Juno Beach, where Canadian soldiers fought and died during the June 6, 1944, invasion that marked the beginning of the end of Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror.

Fighting at forts of the Niagara front

STORY BY SHARON ADAMS

The Niagara River runs roughly south-north between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, a vital transportation—and once communication—line in the Great Lakes. To safeguard their interests, Europeans bent on colonization and economic gain built forts at the river’s source on Lake Erie and its mouth on Lake Ontario.

In 1812, the river marked the border between the state of New York and the British colony of Upper Canada. The United States wanted to erase that border and absorb Canada—or British North America as it was known as the time—into its union.
