In order to comply with the Provincial Health Order that requires events to be limited to 50 people or less, the District of Saanich’s annual Remembrance Day ceremony will be closed to the public for 2020. Those groups looking to lay a wreath will be asked to do so following the ceremony at a designated time.
Every year on November 11 Canadians pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve, our country during times of war, conflict and peace. More than 1,500,000 Canadians have served our country in this way, and more than 100,000 have died. They died for us, for their homes and families and friends, for a collection of traditions they cherished and a future they believed in; they died for Canada. They gave their lives and their futures so that we may live in peace.
If your organization would like to lay a wreath please contact the event coordinator Rob Phillips by email.
