The Correctional Workers’ Memorial recognizes a rarely considered but essential part of modern society: the correctional workers in Ontario and their ongoing commitment to public service.

The grueling days and hours logged by correctional workers in the larger context of public safety represented by an abstract sundial, consisting of a central spine from which fan bronze ‘fins’, the position of each fin corresponds to an angle of the sun throughout the day.

The Monument is sited near several other memorials to civil society, within Whitney Block at Queen’s Park, which is the institutional seat of government in Toronto.
