Veterans' Week

Every year, Canadians remember and honour our Veterans – those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending Canada's interests at home and abroad. November 5 to 11 marks Veterans' Week, with hundreds of ceremonies and events taking place across Canada.

Join us in honouring the achievements and sacrifices of all who have served Canada, as well as those who continue to serve in uniform today.
