The 150th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mounted PoliceMay 23, 2023

The RCMP Veterans’ Association, Ottawa Division, will build the RCMP Veterans’ Legacy Pathway at the RCMP National Memorial Cemetery situated within the picturesque gardens of Beechwood, the National Cemetery of Canada.

The intent of the RCMP Veterans’ Legacy Pathway is:

  • to profile the contributions of the RCMP to the development of Canada,
  • to capture the highlights of the history of the RCMP from its inception in 1873, and
  • to recognize all those who served throughout the years.

The RCMP Veterans’ Legacy Pathway will be a foundation of 120-140 feet (40 metres) which will hold 10 interpretive panels (5 in English and 5 in French) to highlight the history of the RCMP in the development of Canada. 

A main feature will be the interactive communications on the site which will expand the story – in written and verbal formats – through immediate web connections making the visit to the RCMP Veterans’ Legacy Pathway attractive to all visitors, and particularly youth.

The Ottawa Division of the RCMP Veterans’ Association is raising funds from those who would like to mark the historical role of the RCMP in keeping our communities safe, in protecting our values and in upholding the law.
