With beautiful footage of the Holten War Cemetery, sombre and touching testimony from veterans and an enlightening Ask Me Anything with Roméo Dallaire, these stories and news clips keep the memory of Canada’s fallen alive.
This Remembrance Day marks 10 years of No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation honouring “Canada’s military by educating students and placing poppies on the headstones of veterans every November.” Watch its 2020 Remembrance Ceremony then donate to help keep the connection between veterans and students strong.
While remembering soldiers who have passed, it’s important to also ensure we support the service people still with us. The Royal Canadian Legion serves military and RCMP members, and their families, ensuring they receive the benefits, assistance and representation they deserve. Purchase a poppy and find out how else you can help those who served.
With no formal Remembrance Day City Hall ceremony happening this year, you may consider visiting a municipal cemetery for some solemn reflection. You may also want to watch the City’s virtual cenotaph listing the names of Edmontonians lost in the First World War.
Veterans Affairs Canada has ways for you to remember and help veterans — on November 11 and beyond. From the Candlelight Tribute Ceremony and Valentines for Vets, to e-cards and Postcards for Peace, there are many ways to help even after this historic day.
