The anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Atlantic was commemorated with a ceremony on May 6, held on the quay in front of the École Navale (Fleet School) at Pointe-à-Carcy in the Port of Quebec.

A large bronze statue by Quebec sculptor Raoul Hunter, of a merchant seaman waving goodbye to his loved ones, stands at the end of the quay.
