Saturday, Canadians pay tribute to the men and women who served our country. While Remembrance Day ceremonies will take place throughout Winnipeg, stores and businesses will run on altered schedules.

  • City buses will operate on a Sunday schedule Nov. 11.
  • City libraries will be closed Saturday and Monday.
  • Leisure centres are closed Saturday but open regular hours on Monday.
  • City pools are closed Saturday with the exception of Pan Am pool and Cindy Klassen Rec-Plex; each facility will have varied hours.
  • Cemeteries will be open Remembrance Day but closed on Monday.
  • Most city stores, malls and shopping centres will open at 1:00 and close at their usual times.

All City of Winnipeg offices will be closed Monday.

If you are looking for a Remembrance Day event to attend, look to your local Legion or cenotaph, with activities often starting at 10:30, ending with a minute of silence at 11 a.m.
