Remembrance Day ceremony to be marked via broadcast

Queen’s University will once again mark Remembrance Day on Nov. 11, but, due to COVID-19 restrictions, will not be hosting an in-person ceremony. Queen’s Chaplain Kate Johnson has provided a video reflecting on the current situation as well as the importance of remembrance.

This year, to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Queen’s community is asked to honour the sacrifices of our military members, past and present, by viewing the Remembrance Day Ceremony at the National Cenotaph in Ottawa.

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. Community members can also observe two minutes of silencewrite letters to active military members or veterans, and donate to the Virtual Poppy campaign to receive a digital poppy.
