In November 2018, the city of Mons, in collaboration with the municipalities of the Roeulx, Soignies and Quiévrain, wishes to commemorate with dignity the centenary of its liberation by Canadian troops. The Montois want to thank those, who a century ago, fought at the peril of their lives to defend our freedom and our rights.

The desire of the city of Mons is to organise, jointly with Canada and its inhabitants, the commemorative festivities. Symbolically, Mons represents the beginning and the end of the great war to the troops of the Commonwealth.
