Canadian Police Memorial Pavillion

Parliament Hill, March 22, 1994, Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien officially dedicated the Canadian Police Memorial Pavilion. 

The Pavilion is a reconstruction of the original Speaker’s Summer Pavilion built in 1877, which stood until 1956 when it was removed due to its condition. In 1993 it was rebuilt on the original site and was solely funded by police officers and their Associations at a cost of over $500,000.

The Memorial Pavilion is a gift to the people of Canada from Canadian Police Officers in memory of their fallen comrades. 


On September 27th, 1998, at the 21st Annual National Police and Peace Officer Memorial Day Service the Honourable Andy Scott, Federal Solicitor General announced “The Parliament of Canada has proclaimed the last Sunday in September each year to be, National Police and Peace Officer Memorial Day”.
