Remembrance Day 2020: Start Here
About Remembrance Day
"Remembrance Day is a yearly memorial day that is observed in many Commonwealth countries, including Canada, to remember those who died in military service, and honour those who served in wartime. It is observed across Canada each year on 11 November — the anniversary of the Armistice agreement of 1918 that ended the First World War". (The Canadian Encyclopedia)
“This feature documentary profiles poet John McCrae, from his childhood in Ontario to his years in medicine at McGill University and the WWI battlefields of Belgium, where he cared for wounded soldiers.”
"This 1964 documentary returns to the battlefields where over 100,000 Canadian soldiers lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The film also visits cemeteries where servicemen are buried."
"This documentary introduces us to thousands of Indigenous Canadians who enlisted and fought alongside their countrymen and women during World War II, even though they could not be conscripted. Ironically, while they fought for the freedom of others, they were being denied equality in their own country and returned home to find their land seized."
Centennial College’s Virtual Remembrance Day Commemoration
Centennial College has a proud annual tradition of marking Remembrance Day. Each November 11, Centennial students and staff have organized and attended meaningful ceremonies at their own home campuses in honour of the Canadian men and women in uniform who fought and died for our freedom.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we are proud to present the very first unified, virtual Centennial College Remembrance Day event. This pre-taped service was created with the assistance of our Story Arts Centre faculty and students, along with our Paramedic students, and is hosted by our Journalism and Sports Journalism students.
Access CBC Curio and check out the collection on Remembrance Day. It features a selection of stories marking the Remembrance Day, in which we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country.
