Remembrance Day in Victoria

There is always something new going on in Victoria, but Remembrance Day is one long-standing tradition in the city that never gets put aside. Our country's century-old practice of taking time on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to remember the millions of citizens who have served is one tradition that grows stronger every year in Victoria and across Canada.

Victoria has a rich military history that comes to life every November 11 for Remembrance Day. It's the ideal time of year to take in a ceremony at one of the region's cenotaphs or pay a visit to some of the city's many historic military sites and museums, and to enjoy this beautiful region in a season when summer's dazzle gives way to golden fall vistas, mystic coastal scenes and quiet reflection.

Plan your Remembrance Day experience in Victoria here with a complete listing of ceremonies and activities in the region, as well as details on the best local sites to visit for immersing yourself in the city's vibrant military history from the 1850s to modern times.
