No matter where you are in the world, take some time to navigate around the main maps of The Fallen – you’ll find there is a fallen Canadian laid to rest nearby who should be remembered. The app allows you to filter by War or branch of the Armed Forces, search by a location, or zoom in to those buried nearest to wherever you might be. The choice is yours on how you chose to navigate and remember.
The more you explore the more you will learn about our history of sacrifice and become immersed by those who have fallen on far-flung battlefields. This release of the app is the first step for the project. Behind every poppy on the maps of The Fallen, and for every poppy a Canadian wears on Remembrance Day, there is a uniquely human story of courage and fear, sorrow and tears. We hope in the future to uncover these narratives and here is a glimpse of what those stories could be.

Although we don't have the burial locations of all past soldiers, we have over 118,000 in a searchable interface where you can search by first or last name, location, or filter by War or branch. Take a moment to look up past family members and help our project grow by submitting any new information you may have about them.
Our most ambitious undertaking relies on you: We currently have the last known Canadian addresses of servicemen and women from the Toronto area from the First and Second World Wars – browse through our Toronto map and you can see the impact . It is our goal to gather this information for every city and town and location country wide.
You can search through any and all of our soldiers and if you have more information we would ask that you to take the time to update the data with their last known Canadian address or any other information you might have.
