THE War Memorial in Goffet Park, Toronto, will undergo a $50,000 restoration.
Toronto RSL Sub Branch president Ron Mitcherson said his organisation had worked hard to raise $20,000 towards the job which would include the installation of lighting to keep the national flag visible at night.
The sub branch has run barbecues, raffles and golf days to raise the money for the project, with more fund-raising planned.
"It's important we remember our history," he said.
The state government, meanwhile, has contributed $11,000 for the project, and the federal government $4000.
MP Greg Piper said the state government's restoration grant would be funded through the Community War Memorials Fund, which was established to ensure a lasting tribute to the sacrifices of our service men and women.
"Increased participation in Anzac Day shows how important it is to honour those who have served our country," Mr Piper said.
"I congratulate the Toronto RSL Sub Branch for its commitment to preserving and improving this memorial. I look forward to seeing the results."
The war memorial was unveiled on September, 1922, at its original location in Victory Parade.
"It was subsequently relocated to the corner of Wharf Street and Brighton Avenue and then to its current location in Goffet Park," Mr Piper said.
Mr Mitcherson said the restoration would repair the effects of age and the damage the memorial sustained when being moved.
He said the renovated memorial would be used for ceremonies to mark Anzac Day, the fall of Singapore, VP [Victory in the Pacific] Day and Remembrance Day.
