Lest We Forget

Since 1919, Canadians have taken time to pause and remember those who have served and continue to serve Canada during times of conflict and peace. Ceremonies are held across Canada to mark the Armistice agreement that ended the First World War on November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m. In Aurora, these ceremonies have been centred around the Aurora War Memorial in Peace Park since 1925.

COVID-19 has necessitated a change in how we observe this important date but has not diminished its importance. We are asking that residents not gather at the War Memorial this year. To ensure that all Aurorans have the opportunity to show their respects, the Town has partnered with the Aurora Legion to livestream this year's Remembrance Day ceremony. During these challenging times we shall not forget the sacrifices of those who came before us.
