Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Canadian Internment Operations



To mark the 100th anniversary of Canada’s first national internment operations of 1914-1920, the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation ( will be unveiling 100 plaques on Friday, 22 August 2014, the 100th anniversary of the War Measures Act.


One hundred years ago – a wave of repression, as thousands of “enemy aliens” were herded into 24 internment camps, from coast to coast. One hundred years later – a wave of remembrance, hallowing all victims of Canada’s first national internment operations. 100 plaques will be unveiled across Canada at 11 a.m. (local time) on Friday, 22 August 2014 in parish halls, cultural centres, museums, and archives associated with the Ukrainian, German, Hungarian, Serbian, Croatian and Armenian communities.
