Remembrance Day Virtual Ceremony November 11, 2020 10:30 am Online only
Due to COVID-19 safety measures there will be no public gathering for Remembrance Day in New Westminster for 2020.
In partnership with the New Westminster Royal Canadian Legion, The Royal Westminster Regiment and other community organizations, Remembrance Day for 2020 has been re-imagined to meet COVID-19 safety requirements and to provide the community with a safe way of honouring our veterans and their sacrifices.
A link for the livestream will be provided on this page closer to the event day.
The community is encouraged to pay tribute to our veterans from home. Join us on Wednesday, November 11 for a virtual ceremony live-streamed online starting at 10:30 am.
Though there is no public gathering this year, the virtual ceremony continues an important tradition of honouring our veterans and the sacrifices made. The broadcast will feature poetry readings, a memorial address, two minutes of silence and wreath ceremony. Music will be provided by the Royal Westminster Regiment Band, the Dowco Triumph Street Pipe Band and Elizabeth Irving.
