Remembrance Day

NOVEMBER 9, 2022 -- Remembrance Day is commemorated on November 11th each year in Canada and marks the ceasefire on the Western Front in World War I in 1918. The armistice (peace agreement) between the Allies and Germany at Compiègne, France took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

On Remembrance Day, Canadians pause to honour those who have served and continue to serve our country during times of war (First World War, Second World War and Korean War), conflict and peace.

As with many public institutions in Saskatchewan, Regina Public Schools will be closed on Remembrance Day. Monday, November 14th is a PD day so students will not return to classes until Tuesday, November 15th.

Indigenous Veterans Day

NOVEMBER 7, 2022 -- Indigenous Veterans Day is recognized annually on November 8th. Originally established in Manitoba in 1994, it is now a national day to recognize and acknowledge the many contributions and sacrifices made to Canada by First Nations, Métis and Inuit people in military service. November 8th is a time to better understand and respect the role Indigenous veterans have played in Canada during the First and Second World Wars, as well as the Korean War, and in post-war peacekeeping efforts to the present day.
