2019 Remembrance Day Events

We all know someone who, in some way, has served our country. It could be a great-grandparent, it could be a friend, it could even be yourself. Being a veteran does not stop at the World Wars. Today, there are members of our community volunteering their lives, both locally and overseas, to protect our country, our people, and ensure our future.

On November 11th, we remember a piece of our history and the people who served and continue to serve our country. This Remembrance Day, there will be several events in both Burlington and Oakville to honour the memory of fallen soldiers and those who serve for our nation’s defence.
