Ce monument perpétue le souvenir des nombreux marins de la marine marchande canadienne qui ont perdu la vie durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, pour la plupart lors de la bataille de l’Atlantique. Le premier navire chargé de matériel destiné aux Alliés a été coulé dès le début du conflit, en 1939. Plus de 1 600 marins canadiens ont péri en mer, dont 267 Québécois.
