Peterborough Veterans Wall of Honour

Thank you for your interest in the Wall of Honour. 

The City of Peterborough is in the process of updating the Veterans Wall of Honour and is asking for the public's help. Anyone with information about a veteran who meets the criteria is asked to contact the Heritage Preservation Office.

The Veterans Wall of Honour was installed in Confederation Square in October 2010 to honour Peterborough's veterans. The design includes twelve monumental granite stones arranged in a semi-circle around the Peterborough Cenotaph, inscribed with the names of 10,382 men and women who served Canada in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. The dedication ceremony took place on October 9, 2010.
