The Canadian Memorial Chapel was built through the remarkable efforts of Padre (Lt.-Col) George O. Fallis, C.B.E, E.D., D.D., as a memorial to those who fought and died in “The Great War”, also known as World War One.
Padre Fallis made a personal commitment while serving as a chaplain in the horrific death trenches of northern France. He later toured Canada by train, raising funds to build a peace memorial for the soldiers whose deaths he had witnessed.
Padre Fallis built his unique memorial. The design includes ten large nave windows, with two historical scenes from each province and the Yukon; as well as an All-Canada window with further historical depictions.
The windows are considered one of the finest ensembles created by the venerable Robert McCausland studio of Toronto in its 160 year history.
