This ceremony held by the Canadian Battlefields Foundation commemorates the first meeting of the people of Caen and their liberators – the Canadian Army. In this square the tanks of the Sherbrooke Fusliers Regiment and the soldiers of the Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry Highlanders, advancing down the Route de Bayeux, met the citizens of Caen emerging from their shelters in the Abbaye de St Etienne, also known as the Abbaye aux Hommes.
