Welcome to Beechwood, the National Cemetery of Canada.
Beechwood Cemetery was established in 1873, and is recognized as one of the most beautiful and historic cemeteries in Canada. It is the final resting place for over 75,000 Canadians, including our Canadian Forces Veterans, War Dead, RCMP members, Governors-General and Prime Ministers and our everyday Canadian heroes, our families and our loved ones.
Beechwood is the home of the National Military Cemetery and the RCMP National Memorial Cemetery, and is a National Historic Site. In 2009, it was designated as the National Cemetery of Canada by an Act of Parliament that received all-party support.
Beechwood is owned by The Beechwood Cemetery Foundation, a registered Canadian charity, and is governed by an active volunteer Board of Directors.
Beechwood, the National Cemetery of Canada and a not-for-profit organization, will be governed efficiently and effectively in the spirit of public service for our community and our nation. Beechwood will ensure that, in perpetuity, it will be operated and maintained in the highest order in memory, honour and respect of those who have left the world before us.
