Across Canada, Remembrance Day services recognizes the sacrifices and bravery of Canadian soldiers who served our nation in times of war, and during peace keeping missions, for nearly a century.

This year marks significant historical military milestones with the :

  • 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge
  • 95th anniversary of the capture of Passchendaele
  • 70th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid

Each year, from November 5 to 11, Canadians join together to celebrate Veterans’ Week.

  • This Veterans’ Week, take time to remember  by attending a Remembrance Day ceremony, visiting a local cenotaph or monument, sharing your thoughts of remembrance online, or wearing a poppy with pride
    • The poppy was first introduced as a symbol of remembrance in 1921 — a visual pledge to never forget the Canadians killed in war and in military operations

      • Two minutes of silence are observed at Remembrance services across the country at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year
    • Learn more and find remembrance events and activities in your area at veterans.gc.ca.
