The Peace Monument was unveiled by Minister
of Veterans Affairs Fred J. Mifflin in 1997. Crowning the Peace
Sector, it is at the heart of the latest addition to the Field
of Honour, located on adjacent ground purchased in 1994, and will
ensure that the Last Post Fund is able to provide burial services
to veterans, their spouses and family, until at least 2030.
