Standing in the centre of the Square du Canada is the Dieppe-Canada Monument, in recognition of the sailors who sailed from Dieppe to colonise Canada. The names of people and events, which have linked Canada and Normandy over the centuries have been recorded on the monument. Also mounted on the wall behind is a plaque that commemorates the Dieppe Raid (also known as Operation Jubilee), a disastrous raid that took place on 19th August 1942 by a force of Canadian and Scottish troops, which claimed over 3000 casualties.
