Other Ways to Mark Remembrance Day

To honour the contributions of military personnel, both past and present, who have served in times of war and peace, Edmontonians are encouraged to observe this important day in other meaningful ways. This can be done by observing a private moment of reflection, making poppies to hang in your window, laying poppies at a local cenotaph or taking time to learn about Canada’s rich military history.
