Did you know Remembrance Day was first recognized in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth? It was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m. – the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

We recognize November 11 as a day to remember and give respect to honour the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war. Whether you are attending a ceremony or not, we encourage you all to wear a poppy, and take a moment silence on Wednesday, November 11 to remember.

Remembrance Day ceremonies will be taking place across the province. Please see below for the details for the ceremony in the Alberni Valley.
