The Hill 70 Team

Our team members, like the Canadian Corps, are volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds: educators, retired military, bankers, architects, and businessmen. Our Patron is The Right Honourable David Johnston, P.C., C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D.
A number of other prominent Canadians also have lent their support to us as Honorary Advisors.

It is an honour for us all to work on bringing to the surface, in visible fashion, a memorial to the extraordinary efforts of the Canadian Corps at Hill 70.
