Queen’s community members urged to observe Remembrance Day through broadcasts

Queen’s University will mark Remembrance Day on Nov. 11, but, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will not be hosting an in-person ceremony.

The university encourages all community members to observe a moment of silence on Nov. 11, 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. Classes are cancelled 10:30 am-11:30 am ET to allow time for commemoration.

A wreath will be laid in the JDUC Memorial Room to honour the university’s fallen.

The national ceremony will start at approximately 10:45 am and is available for viewing on Facebook via the Canadian Legion, and will also be carried by Canadian broadcasters. The Queen’s Park Ceremony of Remembrance and the City of Kingston’s Civic Ceremony are also available online.
