Highway of Heroes - Funding for Tree Planting Campaign

Published on July 30, 2020

The Ontario Government is providing $1M in funding in partnership with the Highway of Heroes Tree Planting Campaign.

This will support the planting of 117,000 trees, and will be a living monument to honour the sacrifice of our Canadian service members.

Ontario values the bravery, commitment and sacrifice of the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces. This initiative commemorates those who have lost their lives in service and honours their sacrifice by improving our environment and communities.

Highway 401 between Glen Miller Road in Trenton and Keele Street in Toronto is recognized as the Highway of Heroes, representing the final journey of Canadian Armed Forces members who died in service to their country.

Over 52,000 trees have been planted under this initiative since planting began in 2016.
