From 1939 to 1945, the people of Canada made enormous sacrifices to keep our world free for generations to come. Since June 2003, their contributions are being recognized through the establishment of the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer in Normandy, France.
Donations have made the dream of the Juno Beach Centre a reality. Anyone who enjoys a better way of life today because of the sacrifices of Canadians during the Second World War can show their appreciation by contributing to the museum and dynamic place of learning that is the Juno Beach Centre. Please note that Canadian Tax Receipts can be issued in most cases.
