Created for the CMTA by Gord Leaf of Sunset Memorial & Stone in Calgary, the Afghanistan War Monument was designed by Renee Charbonneau, the project lead.

The Afghanistan War Monument

The Afghanistan War Monument is the site where we commemorate Indigenous Veterans Day until the Batoche Memorial and Aboriginal War Monument miniatures are created for our Metis and Indigenous Service & History Clusters. It is also where we will celebrate/commemorate Canadian Forces Day and other military related events.
