Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day livestream | November 11, 2021 @ 10.30 AM

November 11 is Remembrance Day.

Remembrance Day Banner - It consists of red outline drawing of poppies in bloom in a field, above which are the words Lest We Forget and Remembrance Day, accompanied by the TCDSB logo
On Remembrance Day, we honour the men and women who have served and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict, and peace. More than two million Canadians have served, with many wounded and making the ultimate sacrifice during their war and peacekeeping missions.

Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was first referred as "Armistice Day” to commemorate armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m. - on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

The essence of the day is to remember all those who fought and died to defend the rights, privileges and freedoms that we are fortunate to have in Canada today.
