Veterans’ Week

Each year during Veterans’ Week, from November 5 to 11, Canadians remember and honour the brave individuals who served our country in the past, and we recognize those who serve in uniform today.

Access Veterans’ Week Learning Resources online.


Indigenous Veterans Day

November 8 is Indigenous Veterans Day. The First Nations, Inuit and Métis people of Canada have a long and proud tradition of military service to our country.

While exact statistics are difficult to determine, the rate of Indigenous participation in Canada's military efforts over the years has been impressive. These determined volunteers were often forced to overcome many challenges to serve in uniform, from learning a new language and adapting to cultural differences, to having to travel great distances from their remote communities just to enlist.

Remembrance Day

The act of Remembrance is one of the most important ways to honour and thank Veterans for their sacrifices.

On Remembrance Day, November 11, we honour through remembrance those who gave their lives to serve our country. By remembering, we pay tribute to members of the Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP who served to defend our values and freedoms. We also honour those who continue to serve our country today.

    Lest we forget

    by MFader , 18 days ago

    I remember my ex-husband and dear friend Michael A. Fader who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, was a member of the Canadian SkyHawks. Michael lost his battle with cancer on Wednesday, October 26th 2022. He was one of a kind.

    🙏 😔

    We Remember

    by Activity'aholic, 19 days ago
    Today we remember.

    We remember the fallen but do not forget the living.
    We shall remember them all.

    We remember their actions but do not forget their hopes and dreams.
    We shall carry on their hopes and dreams.

    We remember their sacrifices but do not forget about what their families have sacrificed to help them serve.
    We shall keep on supporting them.

    Lest we forget.
