On November 11th, Canada remembers Service, Courage, and Sacrifice at home, around the world and across generations. Today and every day, we honour those who served and continue to serve around the world. Remembrance Day is also known as Armistice Day and ‘poppy day’ around the world. It is our annual reminder of significant sacrifices made in the past that have led to current freedoms. It’s observed on this date to commemorate the end of World War I, which officially took place on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. We encourage everyone to partake in two minutes of silence at 11am.
