Honouring Our Veterans in Toronto on Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day
Toronto Remembrance Day ceremonies are a way of honouring our veterans by offering sombre, poignant opportunities to reflect. Moreover, let’s raise a generation of children who understand the service given and sacrifices made during wartime (and every day) by our military personnel.

For more information on Veteran Canada’s Remembrance events and ceremonies, please visit www.veterans.gc.ca.

The Royal Canadian Legion also has details on ceremonies across the country at www.legion.ca.
