City reminding residents to Remember In Place on November 11

November 10 2020 –

A modified variation of Vancouver’s annual Remembrance Working day ceremony will be held at 10:30am on Wednesday, November 11, to honour Canada’s veterans, and to mark the 75th anniversary of the finish of the 2nd Earth War. 

Watch safely from dwelling

The celebration will be livestreamed on our Facebook and YouTube pages.  

The Metropolis of Vancouver and the Vancouver Remembrance Day Committee are reminding the community to #RememberInPlace and honour Canada’s veterans by viewing this year’s ceremony safely and securely from residence.

Associates of the community are requested to stay clear of the ceremony web-site this yr. 

Victory Square will be shut, with no community wreath-laying permitted. There will be no parade or screens for viewing the ceremony on web-site. A confined number of formal wreaths will be put. No other wreaths will be placed this calendar year, and customers of the public really should not acquire soon after the ceremony to place their poppy on the Cenotaph.

The Remembrance Day Service is structured by the Vancouver Remembrance Day Committee, a volunteer group founded by the City in 1946 with the mandate to perform the ceremony each and every November 11 on behalf of its citizens.

Elementary pupils put in poppies, purple feathers at City Corridor
