Next-of-Kin Memorial Avenue L'Avenue Commémorative

Begun in 1922-1923 by the military chapter of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire, Saskatoon's Memorial Avenue is the only intact example of the "Roads of Remembrance" which were created in various Canadian cities after the First World War. These living memorials, undertaken by local service groups to honour their community's fallen soldiers, were modeled after the straight, tree lined country avenues of France. A small plaque contributed by the next-of-kin dedicates each tree to an individual soldier, created a highly symbolic personal and community tribute.

Commencée en 1922-1823 par la section militaire de l'Ordre impérial des filles de l'Empire, l'avenue commémorative de Saskatoon est le seul example intact des chemins du souvenir créés dans diverses villes canadiennes après la Premiére Guere mondiale. Ces chemins, aménagés par des groupes d'entraide en l'honneur des soldats de l'endroit tombés sur les champs de bataille, s'inspiraient des avenues droites et bordées dárbres des campagnes françaises. Témoignage personnel et collectif hautement symbolique, une petite plaque offerte par la famille dédie chaque arbre à un soldat particulier.
