Remembrance Day – November 11

Every year on November 11, Canadians acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country during times of war, military conflict and peace.

City of Toronto services marking Remembrance Day take place at Old City Hall and at each of the Civic Centres across Toronto: East York, Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough and York. Services are also held at Fort York. The public is invited to attend these events.

The Veterans’ Memorial is located on the northwest part of the front lawn of the Ontario Legislature at Queen’s Park with the following features:

  • 30-metre-long granite wall etched with scenes from Canada’s war history and inscribed with text from author Jane Urquhart and military historian Jack Granatstein
  • a stone-paved gathering area
  • a seating area
  • paths and a gently sloping lawn

The laying of wreaths is an important part of Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Among the many wreaths laid each year is the People’s Wreath.

Members of the public are asked to acknowledge the sacrifices that have been made on their behalf by placing a poppy on a flowerless wreath.

This year, come to the Ceremony of Remembrance at Queen’s Park and pin a poppy on the People’s Wreath.

Everyone welcome.
