On 28 June 2000, the Halifax Foundation hosted a day of remembrance, as four of seven special markers of distinction were unveiled in Dartmouth to serve as testimony to the historical significance of various Dartmouth events. During the morning Dr. Edmund Morris, Chair of the Halifax Foundation was joined by several others as the official unveilings took place. The markers were titled: Source:

The Markers of Distinction program was active 1998-2000. It began as a project, coordinated by The Halifax Foundation in celebration of the new millennium, to commemorate the various historical achievements of the Halifax Regional Municipality, and based on this initial concept, partnering seemed a natural fit to both the Foundation and the HRM Millennium Committee. The program completed the installation of 24 individual Markers of Distinction erected around the Municipality.
