Edmonton has a rich tradition of honouring military personnel and veterans with a multitude of events on Remembrance Day. Because of Covid, most of the 2021 events and ceremonies have been scaled down significantly to invite-only. However, there are several online streaming options your family can watch. Join one of these streamed events on Remembrance Day to learn about the service and sacrifices made during wartime and every day by our military personnel. Remembrance Day ceremonies offer sombre, poignant opportunities to reflect.
