This is a summary of some Remembrance Day services in the City of Calgary. You may find more services at Royal Canadian Legions or community centres. Some services may be virtual or by invitation-only for 2021. This guide is accurate to the best of our knowledge at posting, but be sure to confirm details before you make plans, as things have been known to change quickly.

Canadian Pacific Headquarters

This Remembrance Day ceremony, which pays tribute to the more than 33 000 CP employees who served, is a private ceremony that will be live-streamed beginning at 10:45 am. The ceremony continues the company’s annual tradition of honouring veterans at CP’s Memorial Square, built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. Though the ceremony is pared down, many important elements will still be incorporated, including the CP locomotive whistle sounding at 11:01 am local time, and across the network where safe to do so, to start a moment of silence.
