BOOKS OF REMEMBERANCE
"The Books of Remembrance contain the names of Canadians who fought in wars and died either during or after them. All the books are kept in the Memorial Chamber located in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. The purpose of creating a site that displays these books on the Internet is to make them more accessible to the public. Quite aptly named are these testaments to Canada's past, for by their very title they remind us to never forget the foundations of courage on which Canada is built."

Canadian Expeditionary Force 
"Over 600,000 Canadians enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War (1914-1918). The CEF database is an index to those personnel files, which are held by the National Archives. In addition, through the support of Industry Canada and the SchoolNet Digital Collections Program, over 350,000 pages of Attestation papers have been scanned and made accessible through the database."
