Italian Fallen Workers Memorial
|Remembering the Italian Fallen Workers of Canada.
Sadly, the largest memorial in all of its kind.
On a windy and very cold Thursday, April 28th of 2016,the Italian Fallen Workers Memorial was finally unveiled after six long
years of hard work by our leader Cav. Marino Toppan. The Committee,the donors and many volunteers. It was a poignantly
beautiful and very well received ceremony with over 2500 in attendance at Columbus Centre (Villa Charities), in the heart of
the Italian-Canadian community, in Canada's largest Italian settlement. On that day, almost 1000 names were added to the
growing list of Italian Fallen Workers, killed in Canada while working on the soil of this beautiful country over the course of a
hundred year span. The following year, another 600b names were and now the ever growing list is in the thousands, making
the Italian Fallen Workers Memorial Wall the biggest of its kind in Canada.
