Welcome to the O'Connor Website

Remembrance Day

During Veterans’ Week 2021, from November 5th to 11th, Canadians will once again pay tribute to Canadian veterans who have served and who continue to serve this country with pride. 

The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Pandemic restrictions have meant smaller ceremonies, or their outright cancellation. Other gatherings are being replaced with virtual ceremonies.

Nevertheless, the tradition of Remembrance will continue, and Canada’s Fallen will not be forgotten. The Royal Canadian Legion encourages all Canadians to observe a moment of silence on November 11, to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve. To honour those that served our country and to commemorate Remembrance Day, please see below:
