Today marks the beginning of Veterans’ Week in Canada. From November 5-11, from coast-to-coast-to-coast, Canadians will honour the men and women who have served our country selflessly in times of peace and conflict.
Through their service, our Veterans have ensured the protection of our values and our way of life. This week, we recognize their commitment to our country through hundreds of commemorative activities and events in cities and towns across the nation.
Veterans Affairs Canada has compiled a list of ways to acknowledge our Veterans, as well as a list of Veterans’ Week events across Canada.
I encourage you to take time this week to acknowledge the Veterans in your community and to join with others on November 11 to pay tribute to Canada's Veterans of today and yesterday.
