Here is how you can honour the fallen, our veterans, and those in active service:

  • The Mayor will proclaim Remembrance Week, November 5 -11.
  • The Toronto sign will be lit red on November 11.
  • The City will again augment the Toronto sign with a poppy from November 3 to 11.
  • The City flies two significant flags on Remembrance Day. A Canadian flag that flew at Vimy Ridge in 2020 will be raised at Coronation Park, and a City of Toronto flag that flew at Juno Beach in 2019 on Vimy Day will be raised at City Hall.
  • Throughout Remembrance Week, the City will share content and stories of diverse wartime and peacekeeping experiences through social media.
  • The City, in partnership with Metrolinx, will present a special exhibit that recounts significant military and peacekeeping milestones that are intertwined with Toronto’s past, present and future. The installation will be placed along the construction fencing at Queen St. W. and Bay St. from November 1 to 11. The same display will be in the Rotunda of Toronto City Hall Nov 6 to 11.
  • Weather permitting, the Remembrance Day fly past by the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association (CHAA) will be performed over Old City Hall at 11:05 a.m., East York Civic Centre at 11:08 a.m. and York Cemetery at 11:25 a.m.
  • Where operationally possible, all Toronto Transit Commission vehicles will stop for two minutes on November 11 at 11 a.m.

Remembrance Week

November 5 – 11, 2023

WHEREAS during Remembrance Week, we honour and pay our respects to all Canadian veterans who have served and continue to serve to uphold the peace and freedoms we enjoy today. We also pause on the11th hour of the 11th day of the11th month, to remember those who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms.

In 2023, we mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice. Nearly 30,000 Canadians served on land, sea and in the air during the conflict, which began in 1950. The Korean Armistice Agreement, signed in July 1953, brought an end to the fighting but it did not bring an end to the conflict. Sadly, 516 Canadians were killed during the Korean War and approximately 38 of them had connections to Toronto.

We also remember Canadian peacekeepers who, as members of the Canadian Forces, have taken part in many operations to keep the peace in countries around the world over the past 75 years, sometimes at the steep cost of their lives.

The City of Toronto acknowledges the bravery, courage and sacrifices of all Canadian veterans who fought for the peace and freedom we enjoy today, in times of war, in peacekeeping operations, and in times of need here at home and abroad. In the face of many global challenges, we continue to honour both those who have served, and those who continue to serve, along with their families.

During Remembrance Week, I encourage Toronto residents to support the Royal Canadian Legion by purchasing and wearing a poppy in memory of the more than 100,000 Canadians who gave their lives.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor Olivia Chow, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim November 5 – 11, 2023 as “Remembrance Week” in the City of Toronto.
