Global Affairs Canada Commemorative Artwork

The Global Affairs Commemorative Artwork will recognize the dedication and sacrifices made by employees and their families at Canada’s 178 missions abroad. It will honour those who have died in service to Canada. The commemoration will be located on the grounds of the John G. Diefenbaker Building at 111 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.

Design Competition

In September 2020, teams of professional artists, landscape architects, architects, and other urban design professionals were invited to submit their credentials and examples of prior work for this design competition. In March 2021, a jury composed of professionals in art and design and representatives from Global Affairs Canada and affected families, shortlisted four finalist teams.
