Remembrance Day 406
Remembrance Day

​It is on this day, that we pause to remember and reflect upon the sacrifices that the Canadian men and women who have served, and continue to serve, in the Canadian Military have made for all Canadians. It is because of their commitment to freedom, democracy and human rights that we are able to live our lives the way we do in Canada.

Remembrance day, also known as Armistice Day is observed annually and marks the date and time when armies stopped fighting World War I on November 11th at 11am in 1918 (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month).

Across generations, Ontarians of all backgrounds have fought and died to make our world a safer place. This is an opportunity for students to make family connections and learn about History both Canadian and world.

To help remember, the YRDSB World War I Project committee has developed an online exhibit about the war from a York Region perspective.
