Two Remembrance Day services will take place in Burnaby on November 11, at Confederation Park and Bonsor Park, with parades to both locations.
Residents are encouraged to wear a poppy, and take time out of their day to pause, reflect and remember those who served at home and abroad, both in combat and in support operations, sacrificing and risking their lives to protect those in need.
Remembrance Day ceremonies are an important and highly valued tradition in our community, to honour those who have served on our behalf.
The ceremony in north Burnaby will be hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #148, and will take place at the cenotaph in Confederation Park. A parade to the cenotaph will begin from McGill Library at 10 am.
The ceremony in south Burnaby will be hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #83, and will take place at the cenotaph in Bonsor Park (Nelson and Imperial). A parade to the cenotaph will begin from Legion #83 (5289 Grimmer Street) at 10:20 am.
