The Royal Canadian Legion has also invited churches to ring their bells at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Remembrance Day in honour of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The armistice of Nov. 11, 1918, ended fighting between the allies, which included Britain, France, Russia, Italy and the United States, and the Central Powers, of Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria.
