The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
Remembrance Day is a day for all Canadians to remember the men and women who served and sacrificed for our country. It is a day we encourage every individual, young and old, to pause, to give thanks and to remember. Our virtual presentation is displayed here for all to remember.
We are excited to be able to present our
Remembrance Day Ceremony "live"

We hope you will be able to join us. Lest We Forget.

The Paris Port Dover Pipe Band made this video in the summer of 2020, knowing that they may not get a chance to show their appreciation and play for our veterans on November 11th. We have included this recording again this year to help add to your Remembrance Day experience.
