Wear a poppy, observe two minutes of silence, and join the livestream online

Residents are encouraged to honour and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace on Remembrance Day. 

Residents can pay tribute to our veterans and active service members by:

  • wearing a poppy and making a donation to the Poppy Fund;
  • observing two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. on November 11 wherever they are;
  • expressing their gratitude online through social media by using #OakvilleRemembers hashtag; and 
  • joining the town’s livestream of the George’s Square Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11 at 10:45 a.m. (details below) to reduce the risk of exposure or spread of COVID-19.
