NEVER FORGOTTEN NATIONAL MEMORIAL
Lest we forget.
LANDinc explored the site selection process and vision for Canada's only National War Memorial honouring the war dead that were never brought back to Canadian soil. Over 100,000 soldiers in 6,000 cemeteries never returned and are honoured through a memorial design that expresses the human experiences of departure, remembrance and reflection.
The proposed elements of the design are envisioned to lightly touch the pristine East Coast shorelines of the Cabot Trail - a Canadian National Park. LANDinc further advised that the Client's vision for a statue on the site, if necessary, be incorporated into an international design competition that explores contemporary expressions of reflection only after an environmental assessment is undertaken. A process of site investigations, environmental assessments, community
outreach and a thorough business case were proposed for future project
phases to ensure programmatic elements and site conditions are suitable for the evolved vision for the National Memorial.
