Canadian Women’s Auxiliary Air Force in WWII

We are planting 117,000 trees – one tree for each of Canada’s war dead since Confederation. A living, breathing memorial.

When a member of Canada’s Armed Forces falls in combat, his or her final journey is along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to the Coroner’s Office in Toronto. We are planting 117,000 trees along this 170km stretch of highway to honour each of Canada’s war dead. Every Canadian can be a part of this historic tribute. Look at the names on the cenotaph in YOUR community. Help us to honour those from YOUR community and ensure their spirit lives on in a living tribute!!
