The Royal Canadian Naval Association Burlington Branch, unveiled that Naval Ships' Memorial Monument, May 14, 1995, with approximately 5,000 spectators, including over 1,000 veterans in attendance.

The memorial is dedicated to the memory of the 31 warships and the 2024 Naval Personnel of the Royal Canadian Navy and the 75 ships and 1466 merchant seamen of the Canadian Merchant Navy who were lost during World War II.

The cairn and ships' remembrance wall is Cambrian Black granite, inscribed with the names of all the 527 Warships that served during World War II in the Royal Canadian Navy under the white ensign, and of the 370 merchant ships that sailed under the red duster of the Canadian Merchant Navy. The ships' names are in gold, the crests are carved and in full colour. A bronze statue of a seaman tops off the cairn.

The memorial is located near the willow trees in Spencer Smith Park. If you served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II, your ship's name is on the remembrance wall.
