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.
Public Program Registration Guidelines
All program rooms have a maximum capacity to ensure safety. We reserve the right to limit the number of program attendees.
An email address is required for public online self-registration. If you do not have an email address, you can register by calling the branch at the phone number provided, or by visiting any Winnipeg Public Library branch in person.
For Family programs, please only register the children who will be attending. Parents/Caregivers who will be attending with their children can be noted in the "Notes" field of the child's registration, but do not need to submit a registration of their own.
For programs with children ages 11 and younger, a parent or caregiver must remain in the library during the program.
If you are interested in registering more than 5 people for a program, please contact staff.
