Where to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies in Canada

TORONTO – On Wednesday, millions of Canadians will mark Remembrance Day and take the time to reflect on the sacrifices made by men and women for their country.

A majority of Canadians (82 per cent) believe Remembrance Day is still as relevant today as it was when it first began in the wake of the First World War, according to poll results released Monday. Three in 10 respondents (32 per cent) said they planned to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to sit among veterans and other dignitaries in Ottawa Wednesday for the Remembrance Day ceremony. The Remembrance Day ceremony honours Canadian veterans who served during the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, and the war in Afghanistan.

Global News will live stream the National Ceremony from Ottawa from approximately 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. ET. Visit Wednesday Nov. 11 for live coverage.

Global News reporters will also be reporting live from the ceremony in Ottawa and across the country. You can follow that coverage in a live blog found here.
