Juno Beach Centre Saved

The Juno Beach Centre has reached a settlement with the French developer of a proposed condominium project adjacent to the Centre in Normandy, preventing the project from going ahead.

Lawrence MacAulay, Canada’s minister of veterans, affairs announced on 7 October that the Government of Canada will support the purchase of the land adjacent to the Centre. The planned condominium development for this area on Juno Beach will not go ahead. Read the JBC statement.
