Cenotaph with wreathsRemembrance Day Ceremony

Every year on Nov. 11 Canadians come together for Remembrance Day to reflect and acknowledge the men and women who served or continue to serve their country during times of war, conflict and peace.

During a moment of silence at 11 a.m. Canadians remember and honour the courage and sacrifice of those who fought for our country.

The community is invited to City Hall and the Cenotaph in Memorial Park for Remembrance Day ceremonies taking place on Nov. 11.

  • 10:15 a.m. - Veterans will lay wreaths at the Honour Rolls and Watson Memorial and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 Cenotaph, followed by the Last Post.
  • Veterans and Legion members will then march through downtown streets to the Cenotaph at Memorial Park for a Remembrance Day service. The procession will leave City Hall and go west on Church Street, and continue south on Ontario Street and west on St. Paul Street West to the Cenotaph.
  • Motorists and pedestrians are advised that there will be a rolling road closure while the procession moves from City Hall to the Cenotaph at Memorial park.
  • The service at the Cenotaph at Memorial Park ceremony begins at 11 a.m.

Residents coming downtown for the Remembrance Day ceremonies should plan to arrive early. Free parking is available at the Ontario Street Parking Garage, the Carlisle Street/Garden Park Parking Garage and other City metered lots and onstreet parking spots.
