Five proposed designs for the National Monument to Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan

Veterans Affairs Canada and Canadian Heritage have revealed the five concepts for the National Monument to Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan. Canadians are invited to view the concepts and complete the short survey to help choose a design before June 9 at www.Canada.ca/survey-monument-afghanistan.

In August 2019, teams of professional artists, landscape architects, architects, and other urban design professionals were invited to provide their credentials and examples of prior work. In summer 2020, a jury composed of experts in the fields of arts and urban design and representatives from key stakeholder groups shortlisted five design teams to each create a design for the Monument.

The National Monument to Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan will recognize the commitment and sacrifice of the more than 40,000 Canadians who served there, and the support provided to them by Canadians at home, as well as the families whose lives were changed by the mission.

A jury of experts and stakeholders will consider the survey responses when selecting the winning design, which will be announced in the fall.
