Remembrance Day – November 11

Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of the World War I hostilities on November 11, 1918.

The common Canadian tradition includes a one-minute silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11:00am, 11 November), as that marks the time when the armistice became effective in the United Kingdom.
