Canada was a major part of D-day, they were designated 1 of the 5 major beaches to attack making it quite significant for Canada, proving there powerful. Overall the allies were victorious against the Germans. This was a huge victory and a big turning point for the war. D-day was very significant as it caused Hitler to lose his initiative in France and greatly hindered the Germans overall.
