"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)

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.
We encourage all Centennial community members to participate in our Remembrance Day ceremonies. Please arrive early to secure a seat at the venue of your choice. If you are unable to attend a ceremony, we ask that you pause at 11 am for two minutes of silence to honour and remember those past and present who have served our country. "Lest We Forget."
