Ontario’s Remembrance Week campaign to honour Canadian soldiers for their service and sacrifice
November 7, 2018 – The Ontario Provincial Government has launched this year’s Remembrance Day campaign, honouring Canadian soldiers past and present for their service during times of war, conflict and peace.
“Most of us will never know the horrors of war or understand the sacrifices our Canadian Armed Forces made, and continue making, to protect this country and keep us safe,” said Premier Doug Ford. “These men and women are true heroes and many of them walk among us today.”
Remembrance Week will be an opportunity for Ontarians to unite and pay tribute to members of the Canadian Armed Forces for their courage and sacrifice in serving Canada, at home and abroad. During this time, Ontarians can participate by organizing a Remembrance Day or a Remembrance Week event and share their gratitude and respect online by using the hashtag #RemembranceDay.
In Kanata and West Carleton, Ontarians can honour Canadian veterans and active service members by observing a moment of silence at 11 a.m. on November 11 at:
Kanata: Kanata Cenotaph located at the Village Green Memorial Park Colchester Square (off Campeau Drive at the corner of Teron Road and Campeau Drive) Everyone is encouraged to be in place by 10:45 a.m.
Carp: West Carleton War Memorial, the Anglican Parish of Huntley and the Parish of St. Paul's, host at the intersection of Carp Road and down Falldown Lane, service will start at 10:50 a.m., parking is available at the Carp Fairgrounds
Constance Bay: West Carleton Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day service will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10. The parade will leave the General Store (corner of Constance Bay Road and McConnell Lane) 1:30 p.m. and the ceremony will take place at Branch 616 (377 Allbirch Rd, Woodlawn) at approximately 1:45 p.m.
“I encourage everyone on November 11th to support our veterans of past conflicts and our members of the Canadian Forces,” and MPP Merrilee Fullerton adds, “It is so important that we show our gratitude for our freedoms and liberties, and the democracy we enjoy in Canada.”
