Lest we forget.

Indigenous Veterans Day — Nov. 8
Remembrance Day — Nov. 11


Indigenous Veterans Day

Aboriginal Veterans Day was established in Manitoba in 1994 and has since spread across the country to other provinces and has been renamed Indigenous Veterans Day. Recognized annually on Nov. 8, Indigenous Veterans Day is a day to recognize and acknowledge the many contributions and sacrifices of Indigenous Peoples to Canada’s war efforts and peacekeeping reputation.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is a day for all Canadians to remember the men and women who served and sacrificed for our country. It is a day we encourage every individual, young and old, to pause, to give thanks and to remember.
The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen.
