As with so many other events and celebrations, COVID-19 has forced us to adjust our plans and adapt to the new normal in order to do our part to keep everyone safe and stop community spread. For these reasons, this November 11th, we are all adjusting how we chose to commemorate this important day.
Join Canadians in pausing for two minutes of silence and contemplation, to reflect and remember those who have served and sacrificed, as well as those who continue to serve at the altar of freedom. Peace comes at a steep price and we are eternally grateful to those who have or continue to willingly answer the call to uphold honour and defend our values.
Our veterans have left us a proud legacy in which Canada’s current peacekeepers continue to maintain and build upon. On November 11th at 11 a.m., the National Remembrance Day Ceremony will be aired by The Royal Canadian Legion via
and shared by media partners to recognize and pay tribute to their sacrifices.
