Honour and Remember
The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen.
2020 commemorations will look different from years past. Pandemic restrictions have meant significantly smaller ceremonies, or their outright cancellation. Other gatherings are being replaced with virtual ceremonies. For the first time ever, people are asked not to attend ceremonies in person.
Nevertheless, the tradition of Remembrance will continue, and Canada’s Fallen will not be forgotten. The Royal Canadian Legion encourages all Canadians to observe a moment of silence on November 11, to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
