Ontario is observing Remembrance Week November 5-11, 2023. We have many OPPA members past and present who have served and continue to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces every day. We acknowledge the service and sacrifice of all of our members each and every day, and especially remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice on Remembrance Day, November 11th and on Indigenous Veterans Day November 8th.
The OPP Association Board of Directors and staff are observing Remembrance Day on Saturday November 11, 2023 by lowering our flags to half staff, pausing for a moment of silence at 11am and attending Remembrance Day ceremonies across the province of Ontario, including at Queen’s Park in Toronto. Monday a statutory holiday for Remembrance will be observed by the OPP Association.
An OPP Association wreath will be among those laid at the Queen’s Park Ceremony of Remembrance. An acknowledgement of the wreath will be made during the ceremony. Director Rob Jamieson will be in attendance at Queen’s Park representing the OPPA.
We encourage everyone to wear a poppy, attend a Remembrance Day ceremony in your area, and observe a moment of silence at 11am on November 11th wherever you are.
Information on finding a Remembrance Day ceremony near you, where to watch a livestream, Indigenous Veterans Day and Remembrance Day can be found on the official Province of Ontario website.
