Remembrance Ceremonies

Every year on November 11, we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country and continue to serve.

Cenotaphs are located in the heart the community; wear a poppy on Remembrance Day. Bruce County is proud of its history.

In most communities the parades start at 10:30 am and ceremonies at 10:50 am. If you can't make it to a cenotaph, take in the 1-minute of silence at 11:00 am in your own way.
Visit the memorial site and share your families story.
