Remembrance Day

Posted by on Thursday, November 10, 2016

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

In Canada, Remembrance Day is a statutory holiday in all three territories and in six of the ten provinces.

The official national ceremonies are held at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. These are presided over by the Governor General of Canada and attended by the prime minister, other dignitaries, the Silver Cross Mother, and public observers.
