OPP Association Observes Remembrance Day 2021
On behalf of the OPP Association Board of Directors, members and staff, thank you to all who have served and continue to serve Canada. We especially remember those who have died and paid the ultimate sacrifice. We will always remember them.
We have many OPP members past and present who have served and continue to serve every day. I would like to acknowledge the service and sacrifice of our OPP Association members. Our thoughts today and everyday are with all of you, as well as with the families and loved ones of our fallen heroes.
Our OPP Association members are observing Remembrance Day on Thursday November 11, 2021 by lowering our flags to half mast, pausing for a moment of silence at 11am and attending Remembrance Day ceremonies across the province of Ontario.
An OPP Association wreath will be laid at Queen’s Park as part of the 2021 Virtual Queen’s Park Ceremony of Remembrance which can be watched live on Youtube.
On November 11, we observe a moment of silence to honour the courage, valour and sacrifice of the heroes who have served – and continue to serve – Canada during times of war and conflict. We encourage everyone to wear a poppy, share your thanks online and observe a moment of silence at 11am on November 11th wherever you are.
You can find a local Royal Canadian Legion ceremony in your local area in Ontario online at this directory on Legion.ca
