The Canadian Firefighters Memorial is part of an urban planning memorial ensemble, commemorating fallen firefighters and creating a national place for their annual Ceremony Service on Ottawa’s Lebreton Flats. The design features a 2 ½ times life-size bronze firefighter, 20m firepole, White Pine, stone memorial wall shaped like Canada, stone-scape, and extensive planting to orchestrate personal reflection and a rhythm of remembrance.
