About The Initiative
The Foundation is continuing its commitment to build a National Monument honouring all Canadian Paramedics who have lost their lives in the line-of-duty. The Monument will recognize the dedication and sacrifice of our fallen Paramedics and be a place for family, friends and colleagues to mourn and remember.
Canadian Paramedics are an integral part of Emergency Services throughout this nation. These first responders are dedicated to the safety, security and preservation of life both at home and abroad. Often engaged in dangerous places, events and sometimes unimaginable situations, Paramedics serve us all proudly.
The Foundation believes after consultation that the Monument should be in the Nation’s Capital – Ottawa, Canada for all Canadians to see. The Foundation is currently working with the National Capital Commission to obtain the necessary approvals to facilitate the selection of the Monument’s final location.
An initial artist design concept rendering of the monument was contracted by the Foundation that was used in our awareness campaign. A national architectural engineering design competition will be opened once fundraising is completed.
Everyone has, or will someday, be touched by the service of Canadian Paramedics. Give generously as every dollar counts – no donation is too small. The Foundation relies solely on public donations and corporate sponsorship for fundraising.
