Tecumseh Monument:

The Friends of the Tecumseh Monument are developing the monument’s current site, thanks to an investment from the Government of Canada. This funding enables the Friends of the Tecumseh Monument to explore new opportunities to further develop the Tecumseh Monument and an outdoor eco-park.

Over the next four years, the Government will invest to increase Canadians’ awareness of this defining moment in our history. This will include support for:
 • A pan-Canadian educational campaign focused on the importance of the War of 1812 to Canada’s history;
• Support for up to 100 historical re-enactments, commemorations, and local events;

 • A dedicated War of 1812 Monument in Canada’s National Capital Region;
• Interactive tours, exhibits, and improvements to national historic sites across the country; and investments in infrastructure at key 1812 battle sites, such as Fort Mississauga and Fort York, Ontario; and celebrating and honouring the links that many of our current militia regiments in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada have to the War of 1812.
