Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is November 11th.

On Remembrance Day, we observe a minutes silence at 11 am (the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month).

Across the world, we pause in this moment of silence to honour and remember all the men and women who have lost their lives, served, and continue to serve Canada and around the world during times of war, conflict and peace.
