World War I Commemorative Names Project


In 2020, Manitoba will commemoratively name geographical features to honour every Manitoba World War I Fatal Casualty.

Manitoba has selected thousands of geographical features that may be used for this project. It is important that we don't name features that already have local names.

We are asking the public to let us know if the selected geographical features have local names.

To review the geographical features proposed for commemorative naming and share your knowledge of local names, visit the interactive map.
