Remembrance Day

NOVEMBER 10, 2021 -- 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 the men and women 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.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Remembrance Day poppy in Canada.

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.
