Remembrance Week: Manitoba's Commemorative Names Program

Since 1955, the Geographical Names Board of Canada has pursued a policy to use the names of wartime casualties to identify unnamed features required for mapping and resource development. Manitoba's Provincial Toponymist Des Kappel will discuss the history of the Commemorative Names Program and places names in Manitoba that have been named in honour of our fallen. You will also learn about the resources available to find information about the people behind the names.
