Remembrance Day ceremonies in Oakville

Wednesday, November 01, 2023
Remembrance Day provides residents with the opportunity to honour and remember those who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace.

On the days leading up to November 11, including Indigenous Veterans Day on November 8, residents can pay tribute to 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 local ceremonies.
