This is a historical landmark right in the core of downtown. A must see to pay your respects for those that laid down their lives so that we could have ours.

It encompasses all Canadians. A sight that must be visited to be appreciated. I wish we had the same memorial in all provinces. Remembrance Day in Ottawa must be spectacular.

Outside parliament. Ottawa city centre is a jewel. I loved Ottawa and its people. All around war memorial was white, snowy but people were skating on the canal nearby and strolling around! The monument is a nice sculpture!

Likely the most beautiful monument dedicated to remembering the sacrifices of Canada's war dead. You have to see the figures to really understand what this monument is all about...men, women, sailors, airmen, soldiers and medics/nurses...even kilts! And then there's the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier...if it doesn't strike a chord in you, I don't know what will. My favourite part... More

A beautiful memorial close to the Parliament Buildings. Two military Personnel were respectfully guarding the monument when I was there. Don't know if this is normal, but it added to the sense of reverence.

A sombre but meaningful monument right in the hear of Ottawa. Peaceful and a place for quiet meditation.

This is a beautiful memorial in Ottawa. With recent events it is a shame that they don't guard the tomb regularly
