Learn about a commemorative handbook, plus a new statue coming to Lt. Col William G. Barker VC Park.
Canada Lands Company and the Algonquins of Ontario are pleased to present the Wateridge Village/Village des Riverains Commemoration Handbook. Resulting from three years of community outreach, collaborative story collection and research, the Handbook explores the personal stories and human experiences on the Wateridge Village lands. The collection of stories, principles and approaches in this Handbook will continue to shape the commemoration work and future development on the site, ensuring that the stories of the past are meaningfully and sensitively brought into the present. A link to the Handbook can be found here.
