Brookside Cemetery
& Field of Honour Tours

Brookside Cemetery is a historic site and the final resting place for many noteworthy people who helped shape Winnipeg. Brookside's Field of Honour is the largest and oldest military interment site in Canada. Tours of Brookside Cemetery and the Field of Honour are offered by the Cemeteries Branch and are provided free of charge.

Field of Honour Tours for schools, youth groups, and the general public are offered once each a year during Remembrance Week in November. The tours consist of a 40-minute Share-the-Story meeting with Veterans who share their personal stories and answer questions from the audience. Following the Share-the-Story session, you can visit the Field of Honour to see the interment sites and hear stories of the bravery and courage of more than 10,000 Veterans and Military Service Men and Women interred here. On the tour you can see some of Canada's and Manitoba's most significant military monuments, including the Commonwealth War Graves Commission "Stone of Remembrance".

The tour ends with a short Service of Remembrance held at the Stone of Remembrance, the place where all Veterans parades were held before the Cenotaph was installed in downtown Winnipeg.

All tours require the organization or school to provide a tour bus that can accommodate one extra person who provides the commentary.

Tour length: two hours
