UFCW Canada observes Remembrance Day – November 11
Over a century ago, on November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m., the First World War came to a conclusion with the signing of an armistice agreement that brought an end to the hostilities.
Each year since, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, people from across Canada stand together as a community to honour and remember the more than 118,000 Canadian military personnel who have died in action since 1914 – making the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.
We also pay respect to the more than two million Canadians who have served and continue to serve in the military to protect our rights and freedoms.
This November 11, on Remembrance Day, let us honour and remember those in military service by acknowledging their courage and sacrifice, and by cherishing the peace we live in.
