There are so many ways to remember and honour our Veterans.Wear a poppy. Attend your local Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11th. Thank a Veteran by sending a postcard for peace. Teachers can order some free learning materials and use the Teacher’s Guide to lead a classroom on a remembrance journey. Students can read a remembrance newspaper written just for K-Grade 2, K-Grade 6 and for Grade 7 and above. Anyone can and should talk to a friend or relative who served with the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan or in other areas of conflict. View Heroes Remember videos and listen to Veterans talk about their experiences. Plant your own Garden of Remembrance.
We have these veterans to thank for our freedoms that we enjoy, and we shall never forget.
Remembrance Day Is Friday November 11th
Canada’s Veterans - Strong, Proud and Free

These are opportunities for all Canadians to recognize the contribution our Veterans have made and to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of Canada.
