Remembrance Day



On Remembrance Day we honour the memory of those Canadians who have fallen in war.  We do not celebrate or glorify war, but we pay respect to those that have paid the terrible costs of war.

It is important to remember that Remembrance Day is not one of the those holidays that is just a chance for rest and recreation. Please take some time to reflect on what Remembrance Day is all about. On November 11th at 11:00 AM, plan to take some time to honour those that have died and those that have served. Whether you attend a ceremony in person, or check out the television coverage of the ceremony in Ottawa or other parts of Canada, take some time for Remembrance.

Veterans’ Week



Veterans’ Week is November 5 to 11.

“Veterans want Canadians to understand the price of freedom. They are passing the torch to the people of Canada, so the memory of their sacrifices will continue, and the values they fought for will live on in all of us.”

Veterans’ Week November 5-11

From Veterans Affairs Canada:

Each year, from November 5 to 11, hundreds of commemorative ceremonies and events will take place across the country to commemorate Veterans’ week. These are opportunities for all Canadians to recognize the contribution our Veterans have made and to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of Canada.

There are so many ways to remember and honour our Veterans:

  • Wear a poppy.
  • Attend your local Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11th.
  • Thank a Veteran by sending a postcard for peace.
  • Teachers – order some of our free learning materials and use our Teacher’s Guide to lead your classroom on a remembrance journey.
  • Students – read one of our remembrance newspapers written just for Grade 7 and above.
  • Talk to a friend or relative who served with the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan or in other areas of conflict.
  • View our Heroes Remember videos and listen to Veterans talk about their experiences.
  • Plant your own Garden of Remembrance.
  • Visit the remembrance challenge page where you will find videos and images you can use to create a mashup, build a virtual scrapbook, a fan site or just decorate your own Web space. Share what you build with others and link back to our site.

However you choose to remember Canada’s Veterans, be sure to share it with everyone you know. Together, it is our duty to pass on our gratitude and keep their legacy and memories alive. This Veterans’ Week, show you remember.
