Lest We Forget
Submitted By Executive on Sunday, November 8, 2015
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians are asked to pause in memory of the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives in military service.

We honour their commitment to the values of freedom, democracy and human rights that we all share.

We also pause in a silent moment to remember those who have fought and died to defend these values.


On November 11, remember them

They are our grandfathers, brothers, mothers and sisters, neighbours ... heroes. Canada’s Veterans - their courage, service and sacrifices have kept us strong, proud and free.

Canada’s Veterans - Strong, Proud and Free

Each year, in November, hundreds of commemorative ceremonies and events take place across the country to commemorate Remembrance Day. 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:

Ways to share online

Use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and Flickr and show you remember Canada’s Veterans. Post photos, videos, and messages using the hashtags #RememberThem.

Remember Them

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 Remembrance Day, Remember Them.
