First World War Centenary
August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War — a pivotal event in our history. The Dominions of Canada and Newfoundland sacrificed and contributed to the war effort in ways too often forgotten. Through their actions, a generation of Canadians established our nation as an independent force on the international scene.
